Arts & Performing Arts Culture, Heritage & Arts

There’s live art and theatre year-round in Alberta. The province's stages celebrate homegrown talent and showcase world-class performances. • Theatre: In the big cities, expect top-notch productions across genres. Even in smaller centres, community theatre is alive and kickin'. • Classics, but not: See cheeky Cowtown Opera perform on the banks of the Bow River in downtown Calgary. It's opera that's totally approachable. Or listen to the Edmonton and Calgary orchestras do pop music and Tchaikovsky with equal grandeur. • Pro tip: Seek out an art opening or book reading for free cheese and wine with your local artist experience.

One Man Star Wars Trilogy

Spruce Grove, Alberta
2017-10-25 To 2017-10-25 MST

Officially endorsed by Lucasfilm, One Man Star Wars Trilogy has been performed for over a million Stars Wars fans around the world. Canadian actor Charles Ross will stun and amaze you with his energetic and extremely entertaining performance that condenses the three original films: Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, into one hilarious production. He single-handedly plays all of the characters - from Luke Skywalker to R2-D2 to Jabba the Hutt - with spot-on voice impressions. He also sings the music, flies the ships, and fights the battles. The successful result of a ‘misspent’ youth, Charles has been touring One Man Star Wars Trilogy for over 15 years. Called a “fun night out”, “innovative storytelling”, and “a tribute to all things Lucas”, this highly energetic romp is perfect for die-hard Star Wars super-fans while it also manages to amuse casual sci-fi consumers. Grab your lightsaber and board the Millennium Falcon before the Death Star explodes. Recommended Age: 6 to Yoda. Running time: 75 minutes - no intermission. Q & A with artist to follow.
