Flying Theater Machine

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

Sundays at 2pm in January and February, Flying Theater Machine is proud to present Space Academy: a science fiction adventure complete with spaceships and weird aliens. Using suggestions from the audience, the future world of Space Academy is created on the spot by Flying Theater Machine’s kid-approved cast of improvisers.

In the future, school will be in outer space! In Space Academy you can join kids in the year 2516 as they adventure along side of weird aliens on other worlds,  or in speeding star ships or gigantic space stations. They’ll need all their brains, courage and heart to meet the challenges of the future, whether they’re black holes, alien civilizations or a cranky computer. The sky is the limit in this futuristic, science fiction adventure.

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!
