ONE MAN STAR WARS TRILOGY

ONE MAN STAR WARS TRILOGY
Written & Performed by Charles Ross
Directed by TJ Dawe

Charles Ross will stun and amaze you with his fun, energetic and extremely entertaining performance of One Man Star Wars Trilogy. Officially endorsed by Lucasfilm, this show has been performed for over a million Star Wars fans from London’s West End and Off Broadway, to Dubai and the Sydney Opera House. The result of Charles Ross’s “misspent youth” is the creation of this hilarious performance, where Ross single-handedly plays all the characters with spot on voice impressions, sings the music, flies the ships, fights the battles, and condenses the plot of three films into one hilarious production.

One Man Star Wars Trilogy performed with permission of Lucasfilm Ltd. All ‘Star Wars’ elements property of Lucasfilm Ltd. All rights reserved.

NAPOLEON DYNAMITE LIVE
GCA FY21
NAPOLEON DYNAMITE LIVE

A CONVERSATION WITH JON HEDER, EFREN RAMIREZ, AND JON GRIES

PG 13

The beloved indie classic film Napoleon Dynamite was made almost 15 years ago. Since then much has changed; but the characters, as enduring as they are endearing, stay in our hearts. Appealing to the inner-teenager in each of us, the story, and more importantly the dialogue, makes Napoleon Dynamite one of the most quoted movies of our time. It makes us laugh – and laugh hard – over and over again. This unique evening includes a full screening of Napoleon Dynamite followed by a lively, freewheeling, moderated discussion with fan-favorite cast members: Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Efren Ramirez (Pedro) and Jon Gries (Uncle Rico).

Fri 9/10/21 7:30PM Mary Stuart Rogers Theater

Mime with noise, stand-up with no talking – drama with no acting. Viral sensation Tape Face has to be seen to be believed.

Tape Face is a character created by performer Sam Wills; delightful, wry, many-layered, hilarious and with universal appeal. He accesses an inner child in us all that must be fed. Through simple, clever and charming humor, aimed at satisfying that hunger, this America's Got Talent finalist gives a performance which is delightful, wry, and hilarious.

His appeal transcends the boundaries of age, language and culture, drawing on a heritage that includes silent film, mime, magic, puppetry, Motown and the films of Patrick Swayze. Tape Face is a pensive, curious soul approaching every object and audience member as a potential friend – or plaything. Shoes sing, empty dresses dance and electrical tape blossoms into roses; he creates a world of possibilities where the only certainty is laughter.
