If you were to attempt to condense all three original Star Wars films into a single hour — oh, and perform the role of every character by yourself — you’d probably need something greater than the Force to do it. Charles Ross isn’t a jedi (we don’t think), but he still manages to do all of these things in his One-Man Star Wars Trilogy, 7:30 p.m. Wednesday–Friday and 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday–Sunday at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave. Tickets are $30-$35. Call 297-2264 or visit cityrep.com.
Stuff happens. Some might use a different noun, but that’s basically the theme of the new production Mistakes Were Made, a satirical comedy about a high-strung theatrical producer set to receive its Oklahoma City premiere. Laughing commences 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday at Carpenter Square Theatre, 800 W. Main St. Tickets are $5-$20. Call 232-6500 or visit carpentersquare.com.
