Photo gallery: Guests, cast members celebrate at 'Wonderland' premiere
St. Petersburg Times society writer Amy Scherzer snapped photos of guests at the Wonderland, Alice's New Musical Adventure premiere gala on Dec. 5. Steve Present, above, was thrilled to meet Alice actress Janet Dacal at the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa.
The celebrations started before the premiere, with Erika and Don Wallace (above), David and Catherine Straz, Frank and Carol Morsani, Hinks and Elaine Shimberg and other sponsors enjoying a dinner buffet. The 600 guests helped raise more than $200,000 for the performing arts center.
The Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center was recently named in honor of David Straz, after he and his wife Catherine (above) made the largest individual philanthropic gift to a cultural institution in Tampa Bay history.
