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

- The Austin Chronicle

This spring at the Hideout Theatre, say hello to the friendly Monster Family! Join them in improvised adventures, games, stories and interactions to discover Kid Monster’s unique gift– talking to humans! Kid Monster doesn’t care if you are human or monster, or anything else; all Kid Monster cares about is making friends and having fun. And you too can help Kid Monster show Monster Family that humans are really nice!

Families, monster and human alike will be able to experience a new way of seeing the world; all before Kid Monster’s bedtime! So bring your tails, paws, stomps and cheers for this hilariously monster of a good time.

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!
