Kito Espino

Kito Espino is 16 years old and will be a junior at Lane Tech in the fall. Mr. Espino joined APTP the summer before eighth grade with no prior experience or appreciation for theater. Now, Feast marks his fifth production with the company, including previous appearances at the Goodman in God’s Work and Home/Land. Mr. Espino writes: “APTP has opened my eyes to the world around me. I have seen growth in not only myself, but also in my fellow ensemble members. I was never really aware of the many issues my own community was facing, but APTP helped shine a light on these important issues, like immigration, housing and foreclosure and education. It is great that I have a place like APTP that I can rely on during the best of times, and the worst of times.”
