Lewis “Dell” Daniel – President

Lewis Daniel is thrilled to be the President of BLT. He served as president of his high school drama club and hopes to bring this knowledge to BLT. His theater background mainly consists of backstage crews, Technical Director, and set design. It had been many years since he was ON stage when his daughter, Megan, “found” a part for him to play in CCT’s production of “Annie” as “Mr. Bundles.”

Lewis is a Special Projects Coordinator for DuPont. He hopes to use his organizational skills and his passion for theater and the many assorted areas associated with the theater to make BLT a nurturing and fun place to be a part of.

Kate Landis – Director of Public Relations

Kate began performing in elementary school and performed in theater productions and show choir throughout high school. Through college, her busy schedule only allowed time for performing at an occasional wedding ceremony…but she made her musical theater “comeback” in a production of Les Miserables—one of her favorite musicals—where she met and had the privilege of working with the like-minded theater enthusiasts who have created Broken Leg Theater. She is excited to now have the opportunity to combine her professional skills in marketing, communications, graphic design, and public relations with her passion for theater in this role on the board.

Her favorite musicals include Anything Goes, West Side Story, Cabaret, The Sound of Music, Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Last Five Years, If/Then, and Les Miserables. Her ultimate dinner party would include guests Stephen Sondheim, Sutton Foster, Idina Menzel, Darren Criss, Jonathan Groff, and Aaron Tveit.
