An evening that is out of this world

Canadian Actor brings you One Man Star Wars Triology on Friday November 9 in the Mullingar Arts Centre.

In One-Man Star Wars™ Trilogy, the same man plays all the characters, sings the music, flies the ships, fights the battles and condenses the plots into just 60 minutes!

Charles Ross is that man and he presents his work at the Mullingar Arts Centre on Friday November 9 (8pm). He explains it like this: once upon a time, in a far away country, a young man spent his entire childhood watching Star Wars videos over and over and over again, becoming so absorbed that it became his own little world.

Now all grown up, the Canadian actor is still living in that world; only now it has taken him from Toronto, where it all began, to more than 180 cities on four continents. Written and performed by Ross and directed by TJ Dawe, One-Man Star Wars™ Trilogy has been bringing countless audiences to their feet since its first performance in January 2001. Its early success in North America led to appearances on TV programmes such as The Today Show and Late Night with Conan O'Brien and an off-Broadway run in 2005. This was followed by its European debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe the following year, where every show of its four-week run sold out.

Now Ross is bringing his hilarious show to Mullingar.

Whether you're a committed Star Wars fan or simply want to enjoy a fast-paced, side-splitting evening that's out of this world, make sure you don't miss it!

Tickets (€15 and €12) from 044-934-7777.
