Flying Theater Machine

Best Kid-Friendly Theater
- The Austin Chronicle 2015 Best of Austin Awards

Sundays at 2pm in March and April, Flying Theater Machine is proud to present Story Soup: using only their magical storytelling cauldron (and maybe a little bit of help from the audience) these vagabond storytellers will cook up three different magical, silly, exciting, never before told stories and present them on stage just for you.

Come watch these vagabonds use their magical cauldron to stir up all sorts of different adventures and — if you pay attention — learn a thing or two about storytelling yourself. The more adventurous among you may find yourself on stage as a mouse, cactus, airplane or even the hero in the story, but everyone will get a chance to help out and add a little bit of spice to the worlds we create. Each story is presented for the first and last time, so every weekend will be a new set of adventures!

Story Soup runs on Sunday March 6th and 27th, and then ALL the sundays in April at 2pm at The Hideout Theatre, 617 Congress Ave.

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!
