Naming rights opportunities

Kāpiti College is seeking significant funding contributions from the community to build a state-of-the-art performing arts centre on the Kāpiti Coast.

Up to four major sponsors have the opportunity to secure naming rights for the Centre or one of its public performance spaces.  Naming rights allow people to leave a legacy, honour someone special, or give sponsors the opportunity to be associated with a positive local development that fosters community and culture in Kāpiti. Our team will work with you to leverage off this partnership through branding, signage media and communications opportunities.

We are so grateful for Coastlands sponsoring the principal theatre (Coastlands Theatre) for $500,000. Now we only have three major sponsorship opportunities available, each for a 10-year term and including a first right to renew.

Naming rights are currently available for the:

  1. whole venue
  2. ‘black box’ theatre
  3. entrance foyer / exhibition space.

Introducing the Coastlands Theatre: naming rights for the principal theatre space have been sold to Coastlands for $500,000

The main theatre in the Kāpiti Performing Arts Centre has been sponsored by Coastlands Shoppingtown Ltd.

The Coastlands Theatre will have a stage of 17 x 9 metres with a ‘fly space’ height of 13 metres.  The 12-metre wide proscenium (the area in front of the stage) will be one of the largest in this part of the country.

The acoustic design will accommodate a wide variety of performance styles from rock to classical music.  The Coastlands Theatre will seat about 332, including wheelchair users.

Still available: Naming rights for the Kāpiti Performing Arts Centre

This state-of-the-art venue will provide flexible, multi-purpose performance and event spaces.  As the only community theatre between Wellington and Palmerston North, with two performance spaces as well as foyer and other dedicated studios, it offers potential sponsors large community and student audiences and attention.

With prominent road frontage on Raumati Road, its public access and civic proportions offer a wide variety of signage options. The attention to acoustic and performance detail in the Centre’s design will make it a popular, well-known venue throughout the greater Wellington region.

Still available: Naming rights for the ‘black box’ theatre

The ‘black box’ theatre is a fully-configurable, 14 metre square, flexible performance space.  It seats 100 people.

This fully functional, multi-use space can be used for everything from ‘theatre in the round’ to a sound stage, and will prove a popular venue for events and smaller scale performances. It is a relatively new concept in the performing arts and there are currently only a small number of black box theatres in New Zealand.

Still available: Naming rights for the Centre foyer & exhibition space

The Centre’s generous foyer space will be a popular venue in its own right.  It can be used to host a variety of community events, exhibitions and functions.

This public space serves as the gateway to the Centre’s theatres, practice rooms and studios.

Kāpiti has limited public exhibition space for art so this generous area, designed to display artworks, will be another asset for the community.  Guests will enjoy viewing art displays before and between performances, with canapes and drinks from the cafe/bar.

Yes, I'd like to know more!
