Coquitlam native Katie Voravong is the assistant director of a Canadian premiere that opens this month on Granville Island.

Voravong, who studied music, dance and theatre at Place des Arts in Maillardville, is leading the latest production from Carousel Theatre for Young People: Stiles & Drewe’s The 3 Little Pigs.

Performed at the Waterfront Theatre from Nov. 30 to Dec. 30, the show is a fairytale musical geared for families and has themes of perseverance, bravery and friendship.

The audience follows the piglets named Cha, Siu and Bao — a play on the Chinese pork-themed dishes of char siu and bao buns — as they leave their family to each build a home; however, they band together when the Big Bad Wolf takes their mother hostage.

The musical was originally penned for the Singapore Repertory Theatre, one of the largest producers of children’s theatre in southeastern Asian, and premiered in 2012.

Directed by Chris Lam, the cast includes Angela Chu, Tanner Zerr, Frankie Cottrell, Kamyar Pazandeh and Steffanie Davis. 

Tickets start at $18. Visit carouseltheatre.ca.
