ATHENS, Ga. —Star Wars fans are in for a treat when UGA Presents brings One-Man Star Wars Trilogy to Athens on Mar. 23. The madcap production, performed with permission of Lucasfilm, hits the stage for two performances at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in Ramsey Concert Hall.
One-Man Stars Wars Trilogy is the creation of Canadian actor Charles Ross. A self-proclaimed “uber geek,” Ross single-handedly plays all the characters with spot-on voice impressions while he sings the music, fights the battles and condenses the plots of three films into one hilarious 90-minute production.
Ross premiered his one-man show in Toronto, Ontario, in 2001 and has since toured around the globe, performing to over one million fans in London’s West End, at the Sydney Opera House, off-Broadway in New York and even in Dubai. To mark the release of Star Wars: Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith in 2005, Lucasfilm invited Ross to perform at the official movie release convention, Celebration 3.
Tickets for the show are $40 and can be purchased at the Performing Arts Center box office, online at pac.uga.edu or by calling 706-542-4400. A limited number of discounted tickets are available to current UGA students for $10 with a valid UGA ID (limit one ticket per student).
Ramsey Concert Hall is located in the UGA Performing Arts Center at 230 River Road in Athens.
