Maryland Theatre may have a new managing director by Feb. 1, Acting Director and Board President Patricia Wolford said Friday.
Seven candidates, all local, applied for the job which will pay a salary in the low-to-mid-$20,000s, she said.
In recent months, the theater's staff has been reduced from five full-time people to between 2.5 and 3.5 positions and a part-time crew of up to 35 people for shows, she said.
The theater made a $41,207 mortgage payment on Dec. 31. Wolford had hoped to reduce that payment to $25,000 but bank officials required the full amount.
