ColdTowne's Youth Program, Excused Absence Comedy, is delighted to bring back our weekly Improv shows for kids and families! Opening in March '23, Story Starts is a fully improvised, interactive, original comedy performed by our adult cast with the help of our audience. Using your suggestions and inviting volunteers to join us onstage as characters, objects, and sound effects, we create a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. Silly, high energy, and hilarious in the most unexpected ways, the story can go in a million directions and every one of them is a surprise!

Performed by some of Austin's most beloved adult Improvisers, shows are crafted to engage, empower and entertain. Recommended for kids 4 and up, audience members can feel free to enjoy the show by taking part through suggestions & volunteering, or by watching from their seats. There is never a requirement to take part.

First time attending a show at ColdTowne? Here's some helpful information:

Where is the theater? ColdTowne is located at 1700 East Second Street. We have a private, gated parking lot that will be open to allow audience members convenient (and free!) parking.

Is ColdTowne a child-friendly venue? Yes! Saturday mornings, all day Sunday, and weekdays during the summer, ColdTowne turns its space over to kids and teens for shows and classes. Though we ask that patrons be respectful of our theater, it is a comfortable, clean venue that's perfect for a kids' show and appropriate for excited young comedy fans.

Is there food or coffee? At this time, the concessions counter is not open during our show. However, feel free to bring that coffee for yourself and juice boxes for all.

Is it entertaining for adults as well as kids? Yes. 100%. The cast of Story Starts is comprised of performers seen on comedy stages all over town. This is the G-rated Saturday morning version of their usual comedy gold.
