Outrageous Holiday Tales!

If you ever felt like your life was just a little bit boring…well, this show is for you. We take the mundane, the everyday, the standard and we make it OUTRAGEOUS! You got to Target to look for a present? We take a journey with stops on the moon, at the pyramids and under the sea to find the perfect gift.

Each show starts with getting an audience member to tell about their day, then we take that and play it back only at 1000x more! Then we’ll tell you the most outrageous holiday tale ever – but we need your help to make it really good. You might come on stage, or help us from your seat or just provide sound effects, but you are what makes this show especially awesome!

The skilled improvisers from the Hideout Theatre will create a completely improvised outrageous show using suggestions and volunteers from the audience. Since it’s improvised, each show is totally unique, never seen before, never to be seen again!

Inspired by the Baron Munchausen Tales  and Terry Gilliam movies – but made appropriate for children.

Sundays at 11am in November and December 2019. Special Matinee on Saturday, December 28th at 2pm.




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!
