This transmission is only for the world’s top spies! That’s you! Are you in a secure location? Are you sure you’re not being watched?


Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to join us for Mission: KidPossible at 11am on Sundays at The Hideout Theatre and use your unique secret skills to save the world from peril!  

In our brand new improvised show made just for kids, Mission: KidPossible, we will utilize silly gadgets, our wits and our imaginations to defeat the world’s most devious criminals! 

During Mission: KidPossible, kids will be invited to help invent technological devices, concoct schemes and help our heroes escape from perilous situations throughout the show! 

Every Mission: KidPossible show is different because we’re completely making it up on the spot! You’ll never see the same Mission: KidPossible show twice and you’ll never see anything like it ever again!

“As a kid I loved watching ‘Inspector Gadget’ and ‘Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego’,” says director Jessica von Schramm. “As an adult I love watching spy films. And Mission: KidPossible combines all of those things!”

Join us and help us save the world!
This mission will self destruct in 5 seconds!

About The Show!

Every Sunday at Hideout Kids, 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.

Hideout Kids (formerly The Flying Theater Machine) has been tickling the funny bones of Austin Children for the past 12 years. “I created [the show] 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 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!
