Roxanne Amundsen
BRAC Board Member

Being born and living in Manhattan I can remember growing up in the Arts and Live Theater. (Interesting point my aunt was in silent movies). In my teens and early 20s my parents took us to multiple live productions and learned to appreciate live arts. During my married life my husband and I volunteered for 10 years at Springfield Little Theater and 3 years at Hammonds Hall. With  this background we have brought our daughter and grandchildren to appreciate live theater and the arts. My business world consists of 45 years in banking with the last 22 years as a Sr. Vice President. After retiring I then went into Tax Preparation for the last 12 years. I have been so impressed with what BRAC brings to the community and look forward to the future of the theater.

Kyle Blanchard
BRAC Board Member

Kyle is a performer, director, and entrepreneur hailing from Virginia. He graduated from Liberty University in 2013 with Bachelors of Arts degrees in Theatre Performance & Production. Kyle has been performing and directing professionally since 2011, but his passion for theatre began in middle school where he soaked in as much knowledge as possible from the local arts education programs. By his senior year of high school Kyle raised the money to buy the rights for Clue The Musical, rented a theatre, then bravely produced and directed the full-length production with just a team of his peers.  Since then, Kyle’s passion for artistic expression and drive to inspire others has grown and he is ready to give back to the local arts & education community.
