The Maryland Theatre's board president said Thursday that the managing director's job has been filled, but a date has not yet been set for the person to start.
Patricia Wolford, board president and acting theater director, said the new managing director was selected about six weeks ago.
Wolford would not identify the new director.
The new director will not start until after the theater's $130,000 balloon mortgage payment had been made, she said. Theater officials are in the process of paying off the debt, although Wolford would not disclose how. The payment is due in May.
Farmers & Merchants Bank and Trust of Hagerstown is the lead bank for the group holding the mortgage, which was taken out in 1994 when the financially troubled theater in downtown Hagerstown was in the midst of a funding crisis. The original mortgage was $250,000.
