One-Man Star Wars Trilogy & One-Man Lord of the Rings

Announcing the Calgary premiere of international hits:
ONE-MAN STAR WARS TRILOGY &
ONE-MAN LORD OF THE RINGS
created and performed by Charles Ross,
Presented by The Pumphouse Theatre
October 18 -29, 2016

One Man to rule them all!

Charles-Ross-001Calling all Geeks!  The Pumphouse Theatre is thrilled to be presenting the Calgary premiere of international hits from Canadian theatre artist Charles Ross, One Man Star Wars Trilogy and One Man Lord of the Rings. Playing in repertory from October 18 – 29, 2016 in Calgary’s historic Pumphouse Theatre, Canadian actor and uber geek, Charles Ross, brings his solo madcap creations to the stage in a pair of mind-bending whirlwind shows.

Much of Charles Ross’ childhood was spent 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 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!

Charlie with RingRoss does the same for Lord of the Rings, where he recreates the enchanting world of Middle-earth with nothing more than elbow pads and his outrageous imagination. Be prepared to journey through the trilogy: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and Return of the King in 3600 seconds of unbelievable kinetic entertainment! Booming special effects, riveting stage fights and harrowing rescues, this gifted performer does it all in this engaging, epic one man show.

If you’ve already seen the movies, read the books and named your first-born Skywalker or Frodo, Ross’ zany take on Star Wars and Lord of the Rings is right up your alley and sure to leave a lasting impression.

Both shows directed by TJ Dawe with lighting design by Mike Schaldmose.
