One Man to do it all. One Man to rule them all!

Written and Performed by Charles Ross
Directed by TJ Dawe

The extremely talented Canadian actor Charles Ross who is bringing “One Man Star Wars Trilogy” will stun you again with his one-man show: “One Man Lord of the Rings.”

Much of 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, flies the ships, fights the battles and condenses the plots into just sixty minutes!

Ross 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 3,600 seconds of unbelievable kinetic entertainment! Booming special effects, riveting stage fights and harrowing rescues, the gifted performer does it all in this engaging, epic one-man show.

The force is with him!

Canadian actor and uber-geek, Charles Ross, brings his solo madcap creation “One-Man Star Wars Trilogy” to the stage in this mind-bending whirlwind of a show.  Ross retells the classic bad hair trilogy in 60 minutes – no costumes, no props, no sets- all the characters, the music, the ships, and the battles.

If your kid’s name is Chewbacca, this show is a no-brainer. If not, get your nerd on and experience the global sensation loved by audiences from London’s West End, Off-Broadway, Dubai, the Sydney Opera House, Lucasfilm, and Charlie’s mom. The Force is strong with this one.

“A one-man reenactment of Star Wars is nerdier – and funnier – than you can possibly imagine!” – SPIN

“You had better start investing in a lightsaber” – The New York Times

“Ross makes an impressive Star Wars run in less than 12 parsecs!” – Chicago Sun-Times

Why so serious?

Written and Performed by Charles Ross
Directed by TJ Dawe

From the madmen behind “One Man Star Wars” and “One Man Lord of the Rings” comes an irreverent parody and homage to the “Dark Knight Trilogy.” Two-faced super-nerd, Charles Ross, lovingly tears Christopher Nolan’s masterpiece a new one in his new “One Man Dark Knight: A Batman Parody.” No costumes, no sets, no Batmobiles, Ross takes you on a one-hour comedic joyride, from Batman’s origins to his epic battles against Gotham’s super-villains. Hold onto your utility belt!
