Flying Theater Machine

“Entertaining and different enough that it’s worth wrangling the kids into the car.

- The Austin Chronicle

Select Sundays in September and October, at the Hideout Theatre, Flying Theater Machine presents a hilarious and delightful family-friendly improv show: Fairly Silly Fairy Tales!

Take your favorite stories, shake them up, mix them around, pour them through a silly filter and what do you get? Fairly Silly Fairy Tales! We take some of your favorite fairy tales: The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, or what have you, or what have you, and then you get to suggest ways to mix them up–like maybe we’ll create the Three Little Dinosaurs or possibly Little Red Riding Hood is bringing pick-up trucks to Grandma. You never know what will happen until the end! These are stories like no other because you help create them. In fact, you might even end up in the show! A blast for the entire family but especially for ages four to ten. So come join us in our kid-friendly, audience-interactive show on Sundays in September and October at 2pm at the Hideout Theatre!

Sundays at 2:00pm in September and October at The Hideout Theatre in Downtown Austin!

About FTM!

Every Sunday at The Flying Theater Machine, improvisors act silly, kids laugh loudly, and parents watch happily as a new and unique story unfolds biased on the suggestions of the kids in the audience. Some of our favorite audience quotes are:

“That was so much fun!” – Kid.
“Thanks, we’ll be back next week.” – Grown-up
“I laughed so hard my sides hurt!” – Kid
“You all are amazing!” – Grown-up.

The Flying Theater Machine has been tickling the funny bones of Austin Children for the past 5 years. “I created The Flying Theater Machine as a way to bring improvisation to kids in Austin,” says Hideout Owner Jessica Arjet. “Kids gain confidence from jumping on stage, and parents get to see their children in such a positive light. Laughter brings people together, so what could be better than offering a way for families to laugh together?”

“We had a great time. The actors frequently stop and ask the audience for ideas and then the story takes off in a completely new direction, but still makes sense. The quick witted humor is excellent, yet remains clearly G rated. Very good for families and children.”KidEvents.com

P.S. We also offer improv classes for kids!
