Canadian actor Charles Ross spent much of his childhood in a galaxy far, far away, watching Star Wars videos over – and over – and over again. The result of this misspent youth is his hilarious show, One-Man Star Wars™ Trilogy, where he single-handedly plays all the characters, sings the music, flies the ships, fights the battles and condenses the plots into just sixty minutes. (Win tickets below)
Written and performed by Ross and directed by TJ Dawe, One-Man Star Wars™ Trilogy has been bringing countless audiences, large and small, to their feet since its first performance in Toronto, Ontario, in January 2001. Its early success in North America led to appearances on popular TV programmes such as The Today Show and Late Night with Conan O’Brien and an off-Broadway run in New York in 2005. This was followed by its European debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe the following year, where every single show of its four-week run sold out.
Since then, Ross has toured the world with the show, performing it over 1,200 times in more than 180 cities across four continents. He has appeared at numerous theatres around the globe, from Dubai and Sydney to Dublin and Belfast, entertained muddy festival goers at Glastonbury, been the highlight of official Star Wars Celebration events and most recently made his third successful return to the Edinburgh Fringe last August.
