What she developed is the entertaining take on the popular WA play written by Don Taylor titled Daughters of Venice.

Every year the college community eagerly anticipates the opening night of the college production and this year is no exception, with the production incorporating more than 30 senior school drama students and West Australian male actors.

Ms Huxtable said Daughters of Venice was set in 18th century Venice and followed the lives of three girls whose time at a convent school is drawing to a close and who must make a difficult choice in order to ensure their fates are happy ones.

She said the production featured students performing live instrumental and solo performances, puppetry and acrobats.

‘Wonderfully extravagant period costumes have also been designed for the production,’ she said.

Ms Huxtable said the range of performances, which includes music acting, masks, puppetry and acrobatics, enabled students to shine in their own area.

The school will present the production from Wednesday, April 10, to Sunday, April 14, at 5pm in the Santa Maria College
