Business Sponsorship Opportunities
Become a Corporate Business Sponsor
Missing Pieces Theatre Show Ltd are pleased to be launching our first tour of: COME DANCE WITH ME – A New Play with added Strictly Come Dancing in September 2019 and, due to Theatre venue interest, will have a second tour in Spring 2020.
COME DANCE WITH ME is a Family show – about a family struggling against the odds!
Lillian finds solace in imagining her, and her dancing partner Jim, as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
Joy dreams of a string of shops.
Their Mother, Vi, is a dance teacher who will lose the ability to move.
Who will get what they want?
With a cast of eight, spectacular dance routines, danced by top dancers, and a witty and poignant play based on a true story, venues consider this to be: “very commercial.”
See More on: COME DANCE WITH ME
We will also be inviting Workshop participants from Young Disabled, Young Carers, and disadvantaged schools to give them a sense of how a show is created and perhaps go to a theatre show for the first time.
A staggering number of 50% in these groups of young people NEVER get the opportunity to attend a theatre or interact with the creative arts.
We are telling meaningful Family stories: “Challenging Preconceptions in an entertaining way.”
Creating new work is expensive and most of the money spent is upfront.
Typically a company will prepare, rehearse and tour on the road for several months without seeing any return on their investment for some time.
This is why public funding of the arts was instigated.
What you may not know is that our funding, (from tickets sales and an Arts Council England grant), only covers 60% of annual costs.
We need to find Match Funding for our Public Funding and we need to find another 40% of our budget privately.
Sadly public subsidy of the Arts is receding and impacts artists wanting to create new and challenging work for a wide audience.
COME DANCE WITH ME – these are just some of the expenses we need to cover

Business Partners and Sponsorship
We can develop a bespoke partnership with you to mutual benefit.
Our creative passion and expertise can deliver a range of solutions that meet your business needs, contribute to leadership development and staff productivity.
We can offer even more than seeing and supporting COME DANCE WITH ME and contributing to developing new writing that is socially conscious.
We are happy to provide some fun packages for your company.
You are also helping us provide workshops for schools, young disabled and schoolchildren. Some 40% may not develop the theatre going habit as they may never visit a theatre while in school.
We also support The Carers Trust – a theme in the play also shows the difficulties Young Carers have always faced.
And it is shocking to realise that one in every ten children may be caring for a relative or sibling with sever physical or mental challenges.
The Carers Trust support our initiative:
“Carers Trust is delighted that Missing Pieces Theatre is staging workshops to accompany their upcoming tour of COME DANCE WITH ME.
The daily challenges faced by young people who care for a loved one are all too real, but they are rarely shown in mainstream theatre and entertainment. That’s why COME DANCE WITH ME and the accompanying workshops are so important. They will enable many young carers to meet other young people facing similar challenges and the play itself will reflect the lived experience of young carers.
We are delighted that Missing Pieces Theatre will be getting in touch with our Network Partners in each tour venue area so they can encourage as many young carers as possible to attend workshops and see a performance which reflects aspects of their own lives.”
