The Lord of the Rings: You’ve read the books, seen the movie trilogy (the extended DVD version, of course), and have already seen the holiday blockbuster The Hobbit. Until the next two Hobbit films are out, what’s a fan to do next?
If a trip to Middle Earth (aka: New Zealand, where the movies have been filmed) is out of the question, be sure to check out the funny, captivating performance of Charles Ross: One Man Lord of the Rings on January 30, 2013, 7:30 pm at The Arden Theatre (5 St. Anne St., St. Albert, 780-459-1542).
Ross, a Canadian actor and comedian, has eloquently compiled every spell, battle, plot, and character from the Lord of the Rings trilogy into a hilarious, one-man production. Even Sir Ian McKellen, who plays Gandalf in the films, has endorsed this witty, captivating play. He has performed this show around the world, even taking the stage at some of the largest theatre venues like the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Even those who aren’t fans of the series will enjoy the humour and compelling storyline – and it’s much easier to sit through than the 3-hour movie version.
Tickets are $25 each, and can be purchased online or by calling 780-459-1542. Some tickets may be available at the door.
