RB Productions was founded in 2003 by 18-year-old Ryan Brown (RB) with the help of family and friends. The first Mainstage show was held that year.
The highly successful youth theatre program began in 2004 and has grown each year in both popularity and attendance. In addition to the youth theatre shows (ages 8-18), programs currently include RB Kids (ages 6-10), the Broadway Performers Workshop featuring Broadway actors and professionals (all ages), Mainstage shows (all ages), regional Workshops (all ages) and Masterclasses with well known Broadway or film personalities (all ages, auditions required).
When Ryan left Concord in 2008, RB Productions continued under the stewardship of Clint Klose, Artistic Director. Programs continued to expand and grow under his care.
2013 was the start of a formal summer Youth Theatre partnership with the Capitol Center for the Arts. This partnership gives youth the opportunity to perform on the region’s premier stage. It was also the year of the first Masterclass and featured guest artist Sierra Boggess.
2013 also marked the 10th anniversary of our programming. Festivities were held at the Capitol Center, with guest visits and performances by program alumni and Ryan Brown acting as Master of Ceremonies.
In 2016, RB Productions entered into a collaborative agreement with Havenwood Heritage Heights to foster relationships between our community’s elders and youth. Masterclasses are currently held on the stage at “Tad’s Place” on the Havenwood Heritage Heights campus.
