Capital E ignites the creative spark in young people, through digital workshops, live performance and events. We are a not-for-profit organisation based in Te Whanganui a Tara, Wellington providing quality experiences to schools and public. In addition to our Wellington experiences, Capital E National Theatre for Children tours shows all around Aotearoa for schools every year. Our staff focus is to inspire, exemplify, unlock doors and open grand vistas of opportunity for young people. Capital E programmes explore and enhance creative thinking and action, providing both the awareness of possibilities, and the means to make them reality for children taking part. Let's get inspired together.
