  Meet the Creative Team of THE VIDEO GAMES

A parody of the popular book/movie series The Hunger Games. The tributes participating in the Battle to the Death have been substituted for video game characters from all the popular video game franchises. Ranging from Super Mario to Mass Effect, a selection of popular, iconic characters will compete to win the coveted title of “Player One.” From voting for their favorite character to saving them from certain death, the audience will be able to alter the course of events throughout the performance. Twelve different fighters, twelve possible winners; all depending on your vote.

May the odds be ever in their favor.

Here’s what people are saying:

“There are so many classic moments that are recreated that will titillate your nerdgasm to the extreme… If you like the idea of the concept and consider yourself a pretty big nerd… you will have a ton of fun watching this show.” – Benjamin Schwartz

“I highly recommend this show for anyone who wants an evening of action-packed laughs and a taste of nostalgia. Whether you claim Nerd Culture or not, go enjoy the obvious hard work this team put into the production. Top notch fights, with top notch laughs. I vote “The Video Games” to be around for awhile. Have Fun!” – Ethan McDowell

“I have now seen this show three times and each time has been beyond excellent!! This show is an hour of just pure theatre enjoyment… I love how different each show has turned out while still maintaining the spirit of my favorite childhood video games. I’ve said it twice, I’ll say it again-go. See. This. Show! I will be, without a doubt!” – Brice Williams

“If you have not seen this show already you must do so. Such a goofy/enjoyable time. The combat was insane. The actors went full out. The improv was hilarious. Way worth your time and money. Go support! They are onto something.” – Melita Camilo
