Tenderfoot is The Civic’s apprentice theatre programme for transition year students in South County Dublin. The ethos of Tenderfoot is one of apprenticeship, so our Tenderfeet learn about theatre by making theatre. During the programme our young people are introduced to all aspects of theatre – writing, set design/ film for theatre, music & sound design, costume design, stage management and acting – under the guidance of working theatre professionals. The original plays in this programme, written by 15/16 year old playwrights, provide a unique glimpse into the world of our young people articulating their experience and their reality.
