Show time: Two family-friendly shows for summer

It’s the dog days of summer, perfect for heading inside for some live — and very Austin original — theater.

At the indie Coldtowne Theater, Saturday mornings find “What’s the story, Steve?” a participatory improv comedy show staring Steve, a white poodle. Kids can participate, or not, and everyone can join in on the big dance party at the end of the show.

Ongoing at 10 a.m. Saturday. Read “Delightful improv for kids and dogs alike in ‘Whats the story Steve?'”
