Amy Krusenklaus is grateful to be serving as President of BLT.
While she has always had a fondness for the performing arts and music, Amy came to love and appreciate theater on a new level when she connected with BLT through her friends and children. As a mother of four kids, two of whom that have become entrenched in acting, tech, and crew with BLT, Amy found herself diving into the work behind the scenes that goes into making any production a success and enjoying every second. She has been on stage in BLT’s Annie, performed as Wally in BLT’s murder mystery Death at the Disco, ASM for BLT’s Beauty and the Beast Jr, and Assistant Director for BLT’s Steel Magnolias, but can usually be found in the role of House Manager for both BLT and the Perkinson Center for Arts and Education.
While her family is her heart and soul, Amy feels most fulfilled when she is helping others and is currently working in Hospice/Palliative Care at VCU while attending school to become a RN.
Amy is honored to be a leader for this incredible theater that feels like home and cannot wait to see what the future has in store for BLT!

Vice President 

Les Harper brings his many years of experience as an animator, director, and illustrator for Turner Studios (Cartoon Network/Adult Swim) to BLT. Everything from set design & construction to posters, t-shirts, tickets, social media, and show programs… he does it all!! When not designing or building for BLT, Les can often be found on stage with leading roles in shows such as Oliver! (Fagin), The Music Man (Mayor Shinn),Les Miserables (Thenardier) and most recently Bye, Bye, Birdie (Harry Macafee). Outside of BLT Les is an art teacher at the Thomas Dale High School Specialty Center for the Visual and Performing Arts where he shares his artistic knowledge with budding young artists and animators. He still continues to freelance through his company, Lightbox Studios LLC, providing animation & illustration services to clients across the globe. Les has been involved with theater and performing arts since his first stage show in Kindergarten at CE Curtis Elementary oh so many years ago, and is thrilled to continue to be involved with such an amazing community theater as Broken Leg. 


Heather Miles is a proud cofounder of BLT and is ecstatic to serve as Artistic Director. She fell in love with theatre at a young age and performed in school plays and musicals including several at Thomas Dale High School. After a twenty-year hiatus to raise her two children Kourtney and Carter, Heather returned to the stage in 2010 as the Cheshire Cat in an adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. It’s proven impossible to keep her away from the stage since! She has directed productions of Annie, Willy Wonka, Jr, The (Almost) Totally True Story of Hansel and Gretel, Charlotte’s Web, and Alice In Wonderland (twice!). Acting accolades include appearing as Madame Thenardier in Les Miserables, Eulalie Mackecknie Shinn in The Music Man, Stage Manager in Our Town, Peggy in Godspell, Mae Peterson in Bye, Bye, Birdie, Grandma Addams in The Addams Family Musical, Miss Trunchbull in Matilda, Aunt Em in The Wizard of Oz, Truvy in Steel Magnolias, and Yente in Fiddler on the Roof. Heather is also the “Marmee” (a role she once played in Little Women) to granddaughters Quinn, Rory and Sloane, who bring her immense joy and lots of giggles. She loves spending time with her family and friends, seeing as much theatre as humanly possible, cooking, and – of course – karaoke! Heather hopes to see you on stage or in the audience very soon!


John Cichocki has been acting and directing for longer than he wants to admit.  He has performed at Swift Creek Mill Theatre, the Jewish Community Center, Salisbury Presbyterian Church, and of course in BLT productions.  His favorite roles over the years have been Jean Valjean (Les Mis), Tevye (Fiddler on the Roof), God (Children of Eden), Judas (Jesus Christ Superstar), the voice of the plant (Little Shop of Horrors) and Charlie Brown (You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown).  He is most comfortable these days behind the scenes directing, which luckily BLT has given him the opportunity to do with his longtime collaborator, Beth Mercer.

John is currently enjoying his retirement after 45 years of teaching. John’s strongest passion is being a dad to his son J.D.  J.D. helps to keep him grounded and young at heart.  John will continue to work to make BLT a safe place for all who want to be involved in the theatre.

Director of Art and Design

Kevin Flores participated in numerous musical and theatrical productions as a child, but he didn’t return to the stage for 30 years until 2019’s Annie at Broken Leg Theater, when he was delighted to perform alongside his own children for the first time. Since then, Kevin has not only performed in several performances, reigniting his love of the theater, but also fallen in love with the BLT family and the organization’s open-arms safety net for theater lovers of all experience levels. Professionally, Kevin has more than 20 years of expertise in brand, marketing, and design, and he has won numerous awards for his work with companies like General Mills, Marriott, Meta, and Walmart. His design work has been featured in many design industry publications, including Designing for the Greater Good: The Best in Cause-related Marketing and Nonprofit Design, and has won multiple AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) awards. He relishes the opportunity to put his years of brand marketing and design experience to use promoting the fantastic casts, crews, and shows from BLT. Kevin is extremely thankful for Heather (his amazing wife) for supporting his countless hours of rehearsals, planning, and meetings needed to bring BLT’s vision to life.


Ever since seeing West Side Story on her 10th Birthday in NYC, Christy Lamberton has been a huge fan of the theater. Christy is a Mom of four with her youngest being very involved in the theater. Christy has always been in the background supporting her daughter’s shows whether it was helping with costumes, props, or ticket sales. Upon moving from CT to VA two years ago, Christy’s daughter performed in the cast of BLT’s Annie. This is where Christy first saw the magic that is BLT. She continues to see this magic with each of their shows and their approach towards community theater. Christy currently works as VP of Sales and Marketing for a national recruiting firm and also served as President of her children’s school PTA for 5 years. Given her love of Broadway, career experience, and past volunteering roles Christy is excited to serve as treasurer on the BLT Board and to help them to continue to grow their vision.
