About us

Rising Starz Whangarei is a Performing Arts Trust run by a team of dedicated volunteers in order to encourage the young people of Whangarei and the surrounding areas to participate in a variety of shows.

Our aim is to give the young people of Northland the opportunity to be part of a theatre group and perform in two shows each year.

Rising Starz is based in Whangarei so if you are aged 8-18 and have a passion for performing, why not get in touch and come and audition for one of our productions.

Rehearsals and performances take place at Whangarei Theatre Company's Riverbank Theatre.
