Created and brought to life by Canadian actor Charles Ross, One Man Star Wars is a live solo performance of the original trilogy of Star Wars movies ( aA New Hope, The Empire Strikes Backnd Return of the Jedi). The multi-talented Ross stuns audiences by singlehandedly playing all the characters, singing the music, flying the ships, fighting the battles and condensing the Star Wars plots into just over 60 minutes of live entertainment.
One Man Star Wars has been seen by audiences in 500 cities and across four continents over the past 15 years. The show made its Toronto Fringe Festival debut in 2002, and soon after toured to Orlando, Vancouver and Chicago. The show really took off in 2005 when it was performed at Star Wars Celebration III in Indianapolis for an audience of 35,000 fans. It has continued touring since then.
One Man Star Wars is recommended for Star Wars fans of all ages. Audience members are invited to wear costumes, but no masks or weapons are allowed.
