MIAMI SHORES, Fla. (WSVN) — The Miami Theater Center held its 10th Anniversary Gala Thursday night.

The guest list included local philanthropists, as well as art and business leaders.

A special cocktail party was held before MTC’s main stage was transformed into a cabaret-style setting to celebrate the important milestone.

“We have friends and family, performers, supporters, donors, people from the government who are here,” said MTC Founder and Artistic Director Stephanie Ansin, “and we are really grateful to have this kind of support and see this many people show up to celebrate this landmark.”

Tony winner Tonya Pinkins also took the stage for the celebration.

The black-tie event was capped off with a carnival-style samba show by Miami-based drum and dance ensemble “Mano Santa.”
