Star Wars in Concert came to ARCO Arena in Sacramento on October 9th and 10th. Endor Base joined up with The Central California Garrison to provide costumed characters for the exhibit area. San Jose was also having the concert that weekend so we had a small number of rebels (just me!) participating at Friday night’s show. We did have two other Endor Base members, Mark and Eugene, who were participating as imperials.

We were allowed to arrive early to look at the exhibits. This was a wonderful opportunity as we were able to take pictures and enjoy the various props and costumes without the crowds. About 30 minutes before the doors opened to the general public, we got ready to change into costume. People were very excited when we entered the exhibit area. We stood at various locations throughout the exhibit and posed for many pictures. A lot of children came to the concert in costume as well as a few adults. Darth Vader was very popular with attendees so he had a constant crowd around him. Despite the fact that I was outnumbered by imperials, I only had one little boy dressed as a clone trooper try to eliminate me with his blaster while his mother was trying to get him to stand next to me for a photo.

We changed out of costume and were fortunate to be given really great seats to watch the show. Of course the concert was wonderful with songs from all six movies accompanied by movie clips (it’s like the Star Wars: A Musical Journey DVD that accompanied the ROTS soundtrack), lights, lasers and even pyrotechnics. Anthony Daniels was there to provide narration before each new song.

Here is a link to pictures taken by Mark Chu-Lin.

Kudos on making it to your local news!

If my sister-in-law had not been visiting us that same week, I totally would have gone up to Sacramento. I would have loved the opportunity to look at the exhibits more than I was able to in San Jose.

Sorry most of Endor Base was in San Jose instead Sad I'm glad you were there to represent the Rebels though!
