It has been three years since the death of Israel Hicks, but Denver Center Theatre Company actor Kim Staunton still misses the renowned director every day.

Many Denver Center audiences know Hicks made history with the Denver Center Theatre Company in 2009, when he became the first director in the world to helm August Wilson’s entire 10-play, 10-decade exploration of the black experience in America for the same theater company. Staunton was cast by Hicks in many of those Denver Center productions. But most don’t know Staunton’s association with Hicks actually goes all the way back to high school.
