In September 2014, 47 transition year students from 8 schools in South County Dublin signed on for their first day of TENDERFOOT, The Civic’s apprentice theatre programme. Transition year is all about experience – new experiences and new ways of learning. Apprenticeship is all about learning by doing.
TENDERFOOT offers transition year students interested in theatre an opportunity to learn about all aspects of the art of theatre in a hands-on way.
The plays in the TENDERFOOT programme are written, performed, produced and designed by the students under the guidance of their tutors. TENDERFOOT tutors are all working theatre professionals. The work in this programme is the work of young theatre artists – our TENDERFEET. We hope you enjoy their first tentative steps.
TENDERFOOT is funded by The Civic, South Dublin County Arts Office and The Arts Council’s Young Ensemble Scheme.
