Eustis’s community-theater group the Bay Street Players have bid good-bye to former executive director Michael Morman, who resigned for personal reasons, and appointed theater volunteer Bonnie Swanson as interim executive director.
Morman had been in the post only since March 1, when he took over from longtime executive director Elizabeth Drew Scholl, whose family moved from the area.
Swanson has been on the Bay Street board since 2008. She also has designed costumes for the theater. Before she worked as a volunteer for Bay Street, she spent many years volunteering for the IceHouse Theatre in Mount Dora.
Bay Street will search for a permanent executive director. Jim Meadows recently became president of the Bay Street board. Other board members are Charlotte Jardine, Debra Sussman, Tim Totten, Nina Vatter, Thomas Young, Kelly Bayne, Cindy Satur, Beth Breese, Marilyn Budzynski, Mary Hays and Lynn Herrick. Members serve three-year terms.
