Emily Rayson, Ottawa, is part of the cast and crew presenting “The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs,” the final show of ESU Summer Theatre’s 65th season. Rayson works in the costume shop.

It will be presented in the Karl C. Bruder Theatre at 7:30 p.m. through Friday. A family matinee will be performed on 2 p.m. Saturday. Based on the popular children’s book of the same name, the story is told from the perspective of Alexander T. Wolf as he tries to set the story straight about how he came to be “big and bad.”

During the show, the audience will become the jury as the characters present the familiar story of the wolf and the three little pigs in a courtroom complete with singers, dancers and shadow puppets. At the end of the “trial,” the jury determines the wolf’s fate. So, two endings are being rehearsed. With a clever premise, exciting songs, shadow puppets, dances and an energetic cast.
