About Professor Ben T. Matchstick

From the coin toss to the final whistle, you'll be in stitches as Ben runs a variety of plays including clown gags, harmonica trains, hand puppets and kamishibai (Japanese street theater). Ben is the "official" Professor of the Cardboard Teck Instantute so you know there will be scores of cardboard in the end zone. Points and pointlessness abound in this rowdy clown referee jamboree for all ages.

About FlynnZone

Each month, the Flynn invites a different local artist or group to the theater to play a variety of fun and interactive shows in a safe and welcoming environment. Shows are held on the second Saturday of each month at 10 am, and each show lasts an hour. FlynnZone attendance is free of charge for kids and their caregivers. This new program is also meant to celebrate community and the amazing local performers who create wondrous art for youngsters. By creating a space at the Flynn for kids to have their first up-close experience with the arts, we can open up new worlds and possibilities, sparking kids’ imaginations in meaningful and lasting ways.
