Tenderfoot is The Civic Theatre’s apprentice theatre programme for transition year students in South County Dublin. Tenderfoot’s apprenticeship ethos means that 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 composition & 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 as it is for young people.
“When I look back on my adolescence, there are a few experiences that I consider to have truly shaped me as an individual, there is no doubt that Tenderfoot is among these.” Declan Moore
