Leadership Change for MLT

Meridian, Miss. There has been a change in leadership at the Meridian Little Theatre.

After just three months on the job, Warren Friedman is no longer at the helm.

The MLT board announced Friedman's resignation Tuesday in a news release. It would not comment on the reason for the resignation. Friedman had come to Meridian Little Theatre from New York in May, with twenty years of experience in all facets of theatre.

It also announced that the longtime chairman of Meridian Community College's Fine Arts Division, Ronnie Miller, will serve as interim director.

"It's a little bit overwhelming at this point with this show goes on pretty soon," said Miller. "And right now we're struggling trying to figure out who's on first, what's on second, that kind of thing. It's a challenge, but I think it can be done."

Auditions for the production of Legally Blonde The Musical will be held Aug. 26 and 27. Click the link below for more details.
