Support New Work

Help us create and deliver new work for a wide and diverse audience:

If you wish to become a Missing Piece in our Creative Puzzle and want to help us in our mission of bringing quality new theatre to YOU, then please get in touch with us by emailing Karen on: karenlynne1@icloud.com

Missing Pieces Theatre Show aim to create work for Families and people who might not otherwise attend a theatre performance; by creating work that we believe they will want to see. 

Come Dance With Me – A Play with added Strictly

COME DANCE WITH ME is our first production and blends a funny and heartwarming Family play with stunning Strictly and Hollywood Dance routines choreographed by Richard Marcel, a world class choreographer, and danced by top notch dancer actors.

We make the play accessible through accompanying workshops that put in context the play that they will then experience. The workshop accompanying COME DANCE WITH ME aims to contextualise the play for a modern audience. It is aimed at schools, young disabled and young carers. Many of these NEVER attend the Theatre. The themes explored are the aspirations of a Family who find themselves facing many challenges including: Acquired Disability, having to be a Young Carer and coping with Bereavement.

For more on this show and the workshops that need support: follow the link to COME DANCE WITH ME

In COME DANCE WITH ME some even get the chance to appear in a part of the show and learn a ballroom routine crafted by our World Class Choreographer: Richard Marcel.

Richard has worked on Strictly and was featured as a judge for the Pro Challenges. He has also worked with Kylie, Madonna and Britney and now YOU!

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.

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. Sadly public subsidy of the Arts is receding and impacts artists wanting to create new and challenging work for a wide audience.

As we are not a charity, but a Company Limited by Guarantee, we rely on you – friends, donors, businesses, trusts and foundations to fulfil our mission.

Being a Corporate Friend is a great way to support Missing Pieces Theatre Show alongside benefits that will inspire and incentivise your staff and clients.
