about David worobec

Tophat's founder and principal artist, David Worobec, is a classically-trained Opera singer and a talented pianist. A graduate of the Boston Conservatory, David has performed in a wide range of settings and ensembles. He has an exceptional vocal range, and has trained across a broad spectrum of musical genres. His repertoire includes opera, showtunes, standards, and more. He is also Maine's premier expert in miniature theater, and has staged hundreds of full stage shows in miniature form, complete with advanced lighting, stage sets, a miniature cast and props, and recorded orchestral accompaniment. David's work with miniature theater has been featured in print publications and video documentaries alike.

The range of his extraordinary voice, his intense focus on singing while organizing lighting and movement, the sets, the figures on stage — there were so many components to appreciate, and yet the show was so absorbing that eventually I forgot that there was only one singer, and that the stage was so small. Or maybe it’s better to say that the tiny stage and the single voice became a completely
convincing way to tell the story.
