Bringing the Arts Home to Kāpiti

The Kapiti Performing Arts Centre will be one of the most ambitious school-community partnerships undertaken in New Zealand. The fundraising committee has done a superb job in getting the project to 85% of the funding. We need the help of the entire community to get it the rest of the way across the line.

Despite being home to a number of performing arts institutes, Kāpiti currently does not have a community theatre.  In fact there isn’t a community theatre from Wellington to Palmerston North.

Please join us in this endeavour: let’s make it happen together.




"As a former member of the New Zealand String Quartet, I have performed in venues throughout New Zealand and all over the world. The Kapiti Performing Arts Centre designers will produce a theatre that will admirably suit the acoustic needs of a group like the Quartet, but have also taken into account the varying needs of a whole range of performance groups. I look forward to playing in this exciting new venue and, as a longtime resident of Kapiti, am delighted to see this project take off."

Doug Bellman   (Former violinist with the New Zealand String Quartet.)
