Nyack Alumna in Remake of Tony-Award Winning "Dreamgirls"
Nyack Communications alumna, Markita Prescott, will appear in a remake of Dreamgirls, the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical. A limited run will be presented at the Kumble Theatre for the Performing Arts at the Long Island University campus on the corner of DeKalb and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.
A May 2006 graduate, Markita is no stranger to the stage or the camera. She has appeared on the long-running television series, The Cosby Show and in many nationally aired television commercials, as well as in off-Broadway productions.
Tony Award winning actor Ben Harney, who co-starred in the original Broadway show, is the director. The seven performances are presented by BAMSS (By All Means Save Some) Theatre Works, a group established as “a concept combining multiple disciplines of theatre with biblical principles in workshop settings to develop vibrant creative community and an understanding of how to serve it.”
Show dates and times are:
November 17 at 7:30 p.m.
November 18 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
November 24 at 7:30 p.m.
