Charles Ross Brings One-Man Star Wars Trilogy to Concord, 2/17
Get your light sabers ready, Concord, because Charles Ross is bringing his wildly entertaining One-Man Star Wars Trilogy to the Capitol Center for the Arts on Sunday, February 17, at 1pm & 4pm as part of the CCA's new family series Showtime Sundays. One Man Star Wars Trilogy," is a hilarious hyperdrive voyage through Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi in 60 minutes. There is a catch. The show only has one cast member.
In his hilarious, kinetic solo piece, Canadian writer/performer Ross plays all the characters, recreates the effects, sings from John Williams' score, flies the ships, and fights both sides of the battles from the original Star Wars trilogy, punctuating his virtuosic performance with captivating factoids and editorial asides. No costumes, no props, no sets - just Ross using his yoga-limber body, remarkable knack for voices, subtle changes in facial expression, and manic levels of energy to put his own distinct stamp on the Star Wars universe. Whether you carry your own light saber or merely enjoyed the movies, this tribute will be appreciated by Droids and Jedis alike. "Ross' greatest achievement comes from the accuracy of the scenes. Word for word, it's like watching the trilogy in fast-forward."-Matthew Jester of the Columbia Chronicle. "One Man Star Wars Trilogy" was directed by T.J. Dawe and has toured world-wide.
Did he spend too much of his childhood in a galaxy far, far away? Well, let's just say that by age 10, he had seen the first Star Wars film more than 400 times and committed virtually every line to memory. Ross has since parlayed this childhood obsession into a one-of-kind theatrical piece, which he has performed in more than 180 cities around the globe and has even appeared at George Lucas-endorsed Star Wars Conventions. Where does he get his strength? It flows from the Force, of course.
