Prepare to travel to a galaxy far, far away as Charles Ross brings his “One Man Star Wars Trilogy” to Raue Center For The Arts at 8 p.m. on February 26, 2016. Experience the original “Star Wars” trilogy like never before!

Ross spent much of his childhood in a galaxy far, far away as he watched “Star Wars” videos over—and over—and over again. The result of this misspent youth is his hilarious “One Man Star Wars Trilogy.” Ross singlehandedly plays all the characters, sings the music, flies the ships, fights the battles and condenses the plot of the original “Star Wars” trilogy into just 60 minutes!

Best known as the mastermind behind the infamous “One Man Star Wars Trilogy” as well as the “One Man Lord of the Rings,” Ross is a Canadian actor whose talents are recognized worldwide. Since first performing his “One Man Star Wars Trilogy” in Toronto, Ontario in January 2001, Ross has brought countless audiences to their feet with his surprisingly unique shows.

Word of Ross’s one of a kind talent has spread like wildfire, with appearances on Craig Ferguson, “The Today Show,” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.” His off-Broadway debut in August 2005 was a smashing success, with critics raving about the incredible intensity that Ross brings to his work.

No matter the engagement, be it a rowdy night out with friends, a matinee with the family or a sci-fi convention for the very dedicated, Ross has entertained the masses with his high-energy and sidesplitting romp through a galaxy far, far away.

Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased online at or via the Box Office at 815.356.9212 or 26 N. Williams Street in downtown Crystal Lake.
