Flying Theater Machine

 

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

- The Austin Chronicle

Sundays at 2pm in July and August, Flying Theater Machine presents “Dinos!”, an all-new interactive improv show for kids at The Hideout Theatre!

In “Dinos!”, the audience and performers will create a prehistoric adventure together. Using suggestions from the audience, a group of dinosaurs will show you what life was like in an era before time. Join us for “Dinos!” to experience a journey through the time of the dinosaurs. In these fully improvised stories, we’ll find many opportunities for the children in the audience (and sometimes their adults!) to participate and guide the story and even play on stage!

Feel free to come in your best dinosaur costume and get into the action!

Dinos!” plays Sundays in July and August at 2pm at The Hideout Theatre, 617 Congress Ave. Tickets can be purchased right here online in advance for no additional fee (recommended).

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!
