Every Sunday at 2 pm in Hideout Theatre, an improv group known as The Flying Theater Machine, puts on a fun and interactive show for kids. The theme is chosen by the group — which is The Pirates of Hideout Cove during July and August — and kids help out with crafting the plot and storyline so every Sunday show is different. Kids are even given the opportunity to become part of the show and spend a bit of time on stage with the actors!

Last Sunday, the pirates went on a journey to mysterious Canada and gave the farmer there tips on agriculture. Because in kid-world, Pirates who spend their time at sea are somehow experts in agriculture. Kids seated on the floor up front were pet sea creatures of a lonely witch and participated in a special obstacle course followed by a pirate dance party. There were loads of laughs (from the kids, families and actors) and tons of fun.
