Megan Anderson, manager of the Princess Theatre in downtown Harriman, has accepted a new position as assistant manager at the Tennessee Theatre.
Anderson was hired in August 2011 and has managed the Princess since it opened in March 2012. Her final day as manager will be Aug. 17.
“It's bittersweet,” Anderson said. “I have seen this building transform into what it is. The best part was seeing how happy people are when they leave shows, just knowing that the word is getting out and being excited about what’s coming up next.”
Roane State Community College, with the support of the Princess Theatre Foundation, operates the theatre. The City of Harriman owns the 540-seat venue. Myra Peavyhouse, dean of Roane State’s Humanities Division, said she hopes to have the position filled by mid-September.
“Megan has done a wonderful job of establishing the Princess as an outstanding arts and education venue in Roane County,” Peavyhouse said. “We wish her well in her new position and greatly appreciate her establishing a strong foundation for the Princess to continue to grow.”
