“If you liked The Lord of the Rings trilogy, you’ll love Charlie Ross’ version – and if you didn’t, well, at least his is shorter.” Sir Ian McKellen aka Gandalf

After sell out tours in 2007 & 2008 Charles Ross is back for An encore Australian tour of One Man Star Wars.
From off-Broadway in New York to London’s West End, from Dubai’s resorts to the Glastonbury Music Festival, Charles Ross has performed his one man trilogy over 1200 times in more than 180 cities across four continents. By age 10 Charles had seen the first Star Wars film 400 times and virtually committed every line to memory.
“Immediately accessible…It was great” Conan O’Brien
Endorsed by Lucas Films, in this fast paced show Charles Ross brings to life all the characters from the original Star Wars trilogy live on stage. Imagine Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C3PO and Chewbacca – all on stage, all performed by just one actor.
‘You had better start investing in a Light Sabre” The New York Times
Ross handles all the characters and special effects himself, without props or costumes to hilarious effect. Charles buzzes like a light sabre, growls like a Wookie and whooshes like the Millennium Falcon. Acclaimed for his physicality and the sheer energy of his performance he sings the music, fights the battles and condenses the plots of all three original films into just one hour!
