Flying Theater Machine

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

Select Sundays at 2pm in November and December, The Hideout’s Flying Theater Machine presents a delightful, family-friendly improv show: A Spoonful of Sugar!

The Sugar family is in trouble. The parents are overworked, the children are misbehaving and neglected. When they are finally forced to hire on a nanny, the children are pleasantly surprised to discover that their new nanny is magical and ready to infuse their lives with a little bit of whimsy, mystery, and fun!

Join us as the Sugars’ new nanny takes us on a series of fantastical adventures, exploring the hidden, magical world behind the every day, which our talented cast will bring to life with suggestions and help from the kids (and parents!) in our audience.

Sundays at 2pm  November 6th – December 18th at The Hideout Theatre, 617 Congress Avenue 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!
