Flying Theater Machine

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

- The Austin Chronicle

Select Sundays in March and April, at the Hideout Theatre, Flying Theater Machine presents a new kids’ improv show: You Drive! Come join us for an exciting ride through the land of improv.  And guess what?  It’s the show where you’re in charge! You Drive puts kids in the driver’s seat. Kids’ suggestions fuel our adventure! Where will we head next? You decide!

Who knows what will happen? Come find out! It’s story time for the imaginative and adventurous! This show is a blast for the entire family, but especially for ages four to ten.

Sundays at 2:00pm, March 2, 23 and 30, and April 6, 13, and 27 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!
