MB Stage Productions was founded in 2011. The first production the company brought to the stage was Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida. Later, MB premiered at the Hollywood Fringe Festival in 2013. MB Stage Productions is here to provide aspiring writers and artists the opportunities to hone their craft and become more involved in the theatrical world, especially if they are a little bit of a geek or nerd.

In 2015, MB Stage premiered THE VIDEO GAMES, an audience-interactive stage combat play that won two awards during the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2015; “The Encore Producer’s Award” for Outstanding Production and Robot Teammate + The Accidental Party’s “Would Coulda Shoulda Award” for Theatre Excellence and Improvisation. THE VIDEO GAMES is currently touring across Southern California at comic and gaming conventions. Recent conventions include: San Diego’s 1st Annual Nerd Con & Nerdy New Year, Long Beach Comic Con and Expo (September 2015, February 2016), and Stan Lee’s ComikazeExpo. In 2016 The Video Games was selected for the New York International Fringe Festival and the San Diego International Fringe Festival.
