ARMONK, N.Y. – Congregation B’nai Yisrael under the sponsorship of the Katonah-based nonprofit organization Rehabilitation Through the Arts is presenting “Amazing Grace,” a documentary about the making of the first and only musical ever staged inside Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, on Thursday, April 16, from 7-8:30 p.m.

The musical grew out of a writing class for inmates led by RTA facilitators Phyllis Ross and Anne Twomey Lloyd, the Tony-nominated actress. Asked to write autobiographical pieces, the women turned in such eloquent and poignant stories that composer-songwriter Michael Minard, also an RTA facilitator, was inspired to add original melodies in the favorite styles of the authors— rock, salsa and rap – and turn those words into more than a dozen songs.

The April 16 showing of the documentary, which includes over six months of rehearsals and interviews with cast members, is free, but donations to RTA are welcomed.

The Congregation B’nai Yisrael is at 2 Banksville Road, Armonk.
