Shows for the Whole Family
There and Back Again:
A Lord of the Rings Inspired Family Improv Show
We open on an idyllic village filled with simple folk, doing the things simple folk do.
A challenge is offered, an adventure undertaken, evil is (probably) vanquished. The difference is – this time YOU are there! You decide what the item of power is. You provide sounds effects. And (if you want) YOU might even become a character in the show.
Travel through land of wizards, adventurers, moving trees, and small people with big feet to save us all in this epic adventure brought to life on the Hideout stage!
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!
Hideout Kids (Previously the Flying Theater Machine) was named “Best Austin Theatre Group for Kids” by Nickelodeon!
