Port Coquitlam native Chris Lam returns in the lead role for Pacific Theatre’s next stage production.
Lam stars as Owen Meany in the Ensemble Theatre Company’s show A Prayer For Owen Meany, playing Jan. 18 to Feb. 9 at Pacific Theatre (1440 W. 12th Ave., Vancouver).
Adapted from the John Irving novel with direction from Ian Farthing, the play tells the tale of friendship and faith.

This fall, Lam was the stage manager for the Snapshots Collective musical, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet, that ran in Gastown before Halloween and also included Coquitlam dance teacher Nicol Spinola as choreographer.
And last year, he appeared as Edmund with Sereana Malani, who also grew up in the Tri-Cities, in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by Carousel Theatre for Young People.
