Horror comedy rock musical “Little Shop of Horrors” gets a miniature twist as David Worobec, a classically trained opera singer, puts on a one-man toy theater performance of this cult classic.

When a timid florist shop worker realizes his venus flytrap can only survive on human blood and flesh, chaos and hilarity ensue in this dark comedy. David Worobec gives an amazing performance, singing and reciting lines for every character, as well as manipulating the puppets on a meticulously detailed tiny theater stage.

David Worobec is Portland, Maine’s premier expert and practitioner of the art of miniature theater. Highly popular in the late-18th and 19th centuries, miniature theater delivers visually stunning renditions of popular stage shows on a micro-scale. Shows take place within the confines of a tiny stage, just a couple of feet tall, complete with curtains, sophisticated lighting, and impeccably detailed props and stage sets. Everything, including dialogue, stage movements, and musical numbers is performed live, in real-time.

The result: a visual and auditory marvel that is well worth an evening out!
