The Spokane Civic Theatre's executive director for two years, Keith Dixon, announced his resignation from the position in a press release distributed this afternoon.

Dixon was hired in February 2014 to fill a vacancy after the Civic's board controversially fired former executive director Yvonne A.K. Johnson.

Dixon cites as his reason for the departure a desire to be closer to his family in Louisiana, where he lived prior to coming to Spokane.

A search committee has been formed to find a new executive director for the Civic. Dixon was scheduled to direct a few upcoming productions during the remainder of the theater's 2015-16 season, including the season-closing show Guys and Dolls. His last day at the theater will be April 11.
