Connor Kabat is an upbeat and creative force who loves to make people laugh and share the joy of theatre with everyone around them. Connor is a firm believer in the idea that you should take the craft seriously, but not yourself. Connor hails from Binghamton, NY. Growing up, old Hollywood musicals were Connor’s Saturday morning cartoons, and early on there was a burning desire to get up and tell stories through song and dance. After years of dancing around the house in a pair of button up denim overalls undone like a dress (“dancing pants”, as coined by Connor’s parents), a stage debut was finally made at age eight as an Oompa Loompa in WILLY WONKA. Connor’s love for the craft only intensified from there.
Connor is now a New York based actor and a recent graduate of the Shenandoah Conservatory BFA Musical Theatre Class of 2023. While at Shenandoah, Connor proudly served as a class representative for MT‘23, a member of the Loaf Improv Comedy Team, and was a founding member on the board of the Musical Theatre Diversity Recruitment and Equity Team. Favorite SU credits include Hugo (TUCK EVERLASTING), Mark (A CHORUS LINE), and Cameron Mitchell John (A KILLER PARTY). Post-graduation, Connor is represented by The Hell’s Kitchen Agency.
Outside of performing, Connor loves to read, watch Drag Race, tend to his (many, many plants), draw, and spend time with friends and loved ones. Connor leaves you with their favorite quote, once read on a charming bathroom stall, “Don’t just exist. LIVE! Take up space”.
