DENMARK —  Tenor David Worobec likes his actors to be small. Small, as in, four inches or less. Worobec is the mastermind behind the Tophat Toy Theater, a one-man miniature theater presenting the great works of the classical Broadway canon using action figurines manipulated on tiny, elegant sets.

Worbec is bringing his miniature production of rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar” to the Denmark Arts Center, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., on Saturday, July 11. 

Working with his mother, set designer and costumer Polly Plimpton, Worobec has build a cultish following around his unique oeuvre in his native Portland, Oregon, where he has mounted full musical productions of such A-list fare as “South Pacific,” “Les Miserables, and Oklahoma, all using a cast that fits in a small box. In “Les Mis,” for instance, the Thenerdiers were “played” by figures of Beetle-Juice and “Disney’s Cruella de Ville.

The event is BYOB.  FMI: 207-452-2412
