The Gala Event was a remarkable celebration of community collaboration at its finest. The main theme of the night was love. Community Theatre groups often struggle to keep going. The groups pool all of their talent and resources to give Mississauga and the GTA the best entertainment value money can buy. At only $30/show or $125/season, you can’t go wrong. The evening began with a pre-show reception where guests mingled and strolled through a gallery of memorabilia. It was followed by a special production emceed by Lisa Horner of Come From Away. Councilor Saito and Mike Douglas from the Mississauga Arts Council presented the City’s Certificate of Achievement to MTM Chair David Charchalis. The Encore Series is truly a significant contributor to the arts. Check out encoreseries.ca for upcoming shows.
