Following up from the success of Star Wars with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, they were back in force for The Empire Strikes Back, arguably the BEST* score to any film. Ever.
Once again the combined forces of the Rebel Legion and the 501st Legion to entertain the guests prior to the mail feature!

Arriving Friday afternoon we made our way into the loading dock, moved through security and surveyed the lay of the land; claiming a change room for the Rebels we stashed our stuff and waited for everyone else to arrive.... soon enough the time had come and we started to kit up ready to meet the masses at 6pm....

Split up into a number of teams the Orange Mafia as we referred to ourselves and Chewie made out way to the SSO Backdrop and waited for photo ops! Luke and Leia hung out near the Wampa with the rest of the 501st making their way around the foyer and outside the venue entertaining everyone.

Making life easier for Team Chewie, we had a bollards and ropes lining the guests up as well as an Imperial Officer acting as wrangler! Much welcomed assistance that is for sure....
Once the doors opened we had a slow start but soon had a constant stream of people wanting photos! Soon enough it was 730 and management pulled us off the line and we made our way back, changed and went to watch the glory that is The Empire Strikes Back.... once finished we regrouped and left their kit ready to come back for the Saturday!


Saturday arrived and again we met up for the afternoon performance, this time joined by a few Jedi we were all set to get dressed for 345 as per our instructions only to be told by SSO Matt doors opened at 315....
giving some of us 15 minutes to get suited up... Doing what we do the Rebel Pilots were locked and loaded and ready quick smart and helped get Chewie out on the floor for the start! Record time to get out there Rebels! Well done...

Again we split up with the Jedi entertaining guests outside, with the rest inside in similar locations. Order of the day was photos with bald guys with Chewie creating hair, always great fund and got us lots of laughs, Sez and myself also enjoyed IOC Jason's Imperial efficiency when taking photos - grabs camera, 1,2,3 - 1,2,3 done...we smashed out photos with a constant line the whole time... This time Vader and his team had to leave and Matt closed off the line ensuring we could make a graceful disappearance. We changed into civies and went back to watch the show!


Two epic evenings of trooping with no dramas was great, always good to see so many friends and family and seeing such a great response to the Rebellion was welcomed, those shiney whiteys sure get some love but when push comes to shove EVERYONE loves a Rebel!

An excellent troop all round, can't wait to do it again for Return of the Jedi






*Personally i think Rogue One is the best....
