Many children of the 1970s and '80s grew up learning all of the dialogue to the original Star Wars trilogy by heart. Now, a  group of Louisville actors are bringing that experience to the stage. In “Star Wars in 60 Minutes or Less,” five actors perform a manic, comic version of George Lucas’ science fiction classics.

“It’s not necessarily picture-perfect, it’s definitely sped-up, it’s very low-budget," says director Chris Petty. "It’s basically five kids in a basement playing Star Wars.”

"Star Wars in 60 Minutes or Less" runs Friday and Saturday at The Bard's Town. Listen to the cast perform an even shorter version of Episodes Four, Five and Six in "Star Wars in Sixty Seconds ... Or So."
