CROTON FALLS, N.Y. – A documentary filmed at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility will be screened Wednesday at The Schoolhouse Theater in Croton Falls.

“Amazing Grace” is about the first – and so far only – musical produced inside the prison for women.

Volunteers from the Katonah-based nonprofit Rehabilitation for the Arts worked closely with the female inmates in a writing class, which ultimately led to producing the musical.

“Amazing Grace” the musical was performed in July 2013, and drew an excellent response from other inmates and invited guests, according to a press release.

The documentary “Amazing Grace” will screen at 7 p.m. at The Schoolhouse Theater, 3 Owens Road, Croton Falls.
