Flying Theater Machine

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

Come down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, a magical world full of whimsical characters. Journey alongside our heroes, who let their curiosity guide them away from boring real life and toward dazzling adventures, delightful creatures, and exciting challenges.

Our audience helps us discover exactly what kind of world Wonderland is, and what marvelous creatures live there. They even help explore it, as kids (and sometimes their parents!) get to participate in the story as it unfolds, becoming the hero’s brave and daring sidekick, or perhaps a sparkling magical fairy, or anything else we can dream up!

Join us in this fantastic place, where childlike imagination and wonder reign supreme!

Sundays at 2pm July 2nd through August 27th 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!
