NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- An Hispanic family whose passion for the arts is making history at the North Charleston Arts Festival. The Castillo family play is set to be the first Spanish play of North Charleston.
The Castillo family loves the arts. Gino Castillo is a musician, his wife Maribel Acosta is an Artist, Director and playwright, and their two children dance and act.
“Our house eats, sleeps and breathes the arts 24/7, we never stop,” said Gino Castillo.
Since March, the family has been working on a play written and directed by Acosta.
What started off as the family doing what they love grew into something bigger than they expected.
“The play is the first play totally in Spanish, in the history of the cultural arts of North Charleston,” said Lydia Cotton, the Hispanic Liaison for the city of North Charleston. “This is an important part of our heritage and our language and we will be able to share this with the American people.”
“That is amazing we had no idea,” said Castillo.
“It’s a big responsibility because you have to come and do it again bigger and better next year,” said Acosta.
Acosta said the play is based on the French novel The Little Prince. The plot is about adults tapping into their youth.
“Many adults lose a lot of the child that they have within them, that innocence, the pureness, they become people who are supposedly very important and busy, and they stop appreciating those things that are important,” said Acosta.
The family says even though the play is in Spanish, it’s not just for Latinos.
“Americans who like to speak in Spanish, and somebody who doesn’t know nothing about Spanish and has interest in the Latino culture, they can come too,” said Castillo.
The play debuts Friday at Sterett Hall Auditorium. It’s a part of the North Charleston Arts Festival.
