STAR WARS: Live on Stage!
Long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away an epic space drama unfolded to the delight of children of all ages. This December, we here at Dark Room Productions proudly fold it back up to present, for eight performances only, STAR WARS: Live on Stage! A deliciously evil empire. A heroic rebel alliance. Cool laser battles! Lightsaber duels! Awesome zero-gravity dogfights! And a $100 special effects budget! Its everyones favorite, classic blockbuster performed with a very small block.
In service to the Emperor, Grand Moff Tarkin constructs the Death Star, a colossal battle station with sufficient firepower capable of annihilating an entire planet. The fledging rebel alliance manages to steal the Death Stars blueprints and put it in the hands of Princess Leia Organa. With the evil Sith Lord, Darth Vader in pursuit, she hides the plans in little maintenance droid R2D2 before being captured and imprisoned. The tiny droid and his counterpart C3PO flee to Tatooine and end up in the hands of local farm boy Luke Skywalker. When Stormtroopers destroy his home and kill his family in pursuit of the fugitive droids, Luke and former Jedi Knight, Obi-Wan Kenobi, plan to escape the desert planet. Together they hire notorious smuggler Han Solo and his Wookiee First Officer Chewbacca to make the trip to Alderaan. Captured by Vader, they turn their misfortune into an escape attempt and free Leiabut not without a terrible cost. With Vader still on their trail, Luke must use the force to stop the empire before its too late.
