Rising Up

If you’ve been to Raumati recently you won’t fail to have noticed a huge grey structure rising from the earth near Kāpiti College on Margaret Road. The long-awaited Performing Arts Centre is coming together, and everyone is working hard. Volunteers and contractors from across our region have come together like never before to realise the vision of a modern, exciting and fresh Centre for not only the lucky students at Kāpiti College, but across the whole of the Kāpiti Coast and beyond.

You can be a part of this thrilling journey and share a part of its story. Full naming rights for some areas are available, leave a lasting legacy with our seat sponsorship offer, or simply chip in through our Give a Little page.
Come with us as we build the largest state-of-the-art community space between Wellington and Palmerston North. There’s something for everyone. Soon that grey concrete structure will be the place to be; not just on the Kāpiti Coast, but across the Lower North Island. Let’s make it happen together.

The venue includes

  • Coastlands Theatre: an approximately 330 seat theatre with a 17m x 9m stage and quality acoustics
  • Black box theatre for drama performance (with sprung floor)
  • Foyer with ticket office, café and toilets
  • Spaces/classrooms for music, dance and drama teaching
  • Small spaces for rehearsal & recording, and office space
  • Support spaces (green room, dressing rooms)
  • Storage areas

The Kāpiti Performing Arts Centre will be a shared space between Kāpiti College and the local community, providing a creative hub to grow and showcase talents of all ages and abilities.

Studies have shown that when the arts are central to learning it can change school culture and improve conditions for learning, faster than any other discipline. The skills learnt in the arts also help shape great business careers.

Having a more affordable community venue will mean a more affordable night out on the Kāpiti Coast. More frequent performances to a larger audience will attract both regional and national tourism, boosting economic development for the district.

The centre will vastly improve learning outcomes for students at Kāpiti College and the wider region. Students who are more engaged with their community and have access to well-equipped facilities will be more motivated to succeed.
