If your child (or you) has a flair for the dramatic, here's a chance to put those skills into action. "The Made-Up Matinee" is a fully-improvised show at the Improv Asylum that incorporates kids and parents alike with family-friendly comedy. The program is lightening-fast and will keep the audience on its toes. And because the show takes place in the morning, before the performance adults can perk themselves up with coffee and mimosas, while the kids can sip virgin mocktails. The series begins this week; the first four weeks are offered for free. Sat., Oct. 5, 11 a.m. Free. (After the first four weeks: kids, $10; adults, free. Program will continue each Sat., 11 a.m.) The Improv Asylum, 216 Hanover St., Boston. www.improvasylum.com
