PINNACLE NAMED TO MANAGE HISTORIC SEMINOLE THEATRE IN HOMESTEAD, FL
MICKEY MCGUIRE NAMED EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF NEWLY RENOVATED VENUE

HOMESTEAD, FL, November 30, 2015 – Pinnacle Venue Services has signed a multiyear agreement with the City of Homestead, FL, to manage the historic and newly renovated, 500-seat Seminole Theatre, it was announced today by Doug Higgons and Tom Paquette, Managing Partners of Pinnacle.

Pinnacle also named Mickey McGuire, a veteran of theater management, operations and marketing, as the new Executive Director of the Seminole Theatre.

The renovated downtown Homestead landmark, which first opened in 1921 as a movie and live entertainment showplace, debuted this month. With the aid of a $5 million bond referendum approved by voters last year, the venue has been completely renovated with all of the newest technical equipment and customer comforts.

Higgons said Pinnacle will be providing all management and operational services for the regional performing arts center, while Anchor Arts Management, Inc., of Miami Beach, FL, headed by Gary Lund, will coordinate a full range of diversified, quality performing arts programming, including ethnic entertainment, to appeal to men, women and children throughout the Homestead region.

"The Seminole Theatre is a gem in Homestead that will glow brighter than ever with the plans we have for the performing arts center," Higgons said. "In addition to a host of top performers and productions, we hope to create new and expanded events that will combine the Seminole Theatre with adjacent Losner Park for family festivals and special events. Our mission is to bring new excitement, fun and activity to downtown Homestead."

"We are extremely delighted to be partnering with Pinnacle Venue Services as we begin this new era in the history of the Seminole Theatre," said City Manager George Gretsas. "There is an enthusiastic new spirit and sense of pride in our city for our 94-year-old regional performing arts center that will once again become an important cultural and entertainment center for all Homestead and Dade County residents."

McGuire formerly was Associate General Manager at DR Theatrical Management in New York City where his responsibilities included coordinating with commercial and nonprofit theater clients in New York and throughout the country. Earlier, Mickey worked as Assistant Contracts Manager for The Road Company, handling national tours of Wicked, Grease, The Color Purple, David Copperfield and more. He has also worked as a Marketing Assistant with TheaterMania in New York City and with the marketing department at Lincoln Center where he worked on the annual summer events Midsummer Night Swing and Lincoln Center Festival. In New Brunswick, NJ, Mickey served for two years as the Managing Director of The Livingston Theatre Company. Mickey has worked as both a Director and Stage Manager in New York City and regionally. He received a bachelor's degree in Theatrical Management from Rutgers University.

"Mickey's vast experience in theater and entertainment brings the new Seminole Theatre an outstanding leader who has the contacts, knowledge and commitment to bring new and exciting entertainment to residents of the Homestead area," Higgons said. "We are very pleased to have him on our Pinnacle team."

The Seminole Theatre was decimated when Homestead was battered by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. In 1993, the theatre's owners donated the building to the city, which later designated it a local historic site, the sole remaining example of Art Moderne style architecture in Dade County.
