Hideout Kids

What happens when you get the crazy critter you wished for?

What happens when you get the crazy critter you wished for?

Wonky Wishes!

It’s the holidays and all you want is something different. A tiny monster with one eye and horns. A small gremlin covered in scales. A tiny creature with wings covered in fur.

But what happens when that dream actually comes true? What happens when your creature escapes and your family sees it? Or worse, what happens when it ends up in the real world? What havoc will it wreak? What hijinks will ensue?

This improv show for the whole family is designed specifically to entertain all ages. The audience gives suggestions that influences the show! A Hideout Improv show is the perfect way to spend an afternoon with the family!

Sundays at 4pm!

Come watch and create the best family show in town!

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 since 2006. “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!
