From lightsabers to Princess Leia’s hair buns, actor Charles Ross does it all in One-Man Star Wars Trilogy. Ross brings his solo act to a galaxy not so far away – Hendrix College Staples Auditorium – Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 8 p.m. Courtesy of Hendrix Special Events, the show is free and open to the public.

By the age of 10, Ross’ Star Wars obsession was such that he had seen the film more than 400 times, absorbing every line of dialogue, every droid bleep and every laser blast. Since its debut in 2002, Ross has performed One-Man Star Wars Trilogy more than 1,200 times in more than 180 cities on four continents, from off-Broadway to London’s West End, in small American towns, Dubai resorts and European festivals.
