Martin Carr, Chairperson of the Palmerston North Theatre Trust, is delighted to announce the appointment of Jeff Kingsford-Brown as the new Artistic Director for Centrepoint Theatre.

“I believe a theatre must reflect the aspirations and needs of the community it serves” said Mr Kingsford-Brown, “and I am looking forward to adding my experience, artistic vision and commitment to carrying on the strong development strategies adopted by my predecessor Kate-Louise Elliott”.
Mr Kingsford-Brown will take up his duties from Monday 19 March.
