THE BRONX - Hostos Community College is bringing a feel-good comedy show to the Bronx for their spring production, and for the first time it's student-directed.

Ebrahim Rasheed is a 23-year-old Hostos student who's always had a love for acting, but this year he had the opportunity to put on the director’s hat. ‘Welcome to Arroyo's’ is a comedy that embraces hip-hop culture and diversity.

Rasheed says he hopes the show will open more students up to theatre and the arts.

‘Welcome to Arroyo's’ opens Thursday at 7 p.m. and will run for the next two weekends at Hostos’ Repertory Theatre.
