Tenderfoot Drama Programme

For the last few weeks, five members of our Transition Year have been taking part in the Tenderfoot Programme at the Civic Theatre in Tallaght. One of them, Anna Traill, here describes the experience :-

Tenderfoot is a Transition Year programme that Veronica Coburn has set up for young students interested in different aspects of the theatre. We've been doing it for a few weeks already, and everyone's really enjoying it. We've learnt about acting and speaking, set design, costume design, lighting and sound.

Five of us were picked from our TY: Fiona Boyd, Molly Sanderson, Lauren Cooke, Sarah O'Mahony and me. Fiona and Molly started before the rest of us and wrote the plays. Molly's play Nobody was picked to be produced. We've met loads of different people, with loads of different backgrounds, and although it's a lot of work, it's so much fun.

The plays are being produced on December 13th, 14th and 15th, at the end of term, and we're all really excited. We also went to see a play,
Danti-Dan by Gina Moxley, which was an incredible experience, and it gave us a great idea of what theatre's supposed to be like.
