SUNY Ulster Stages Play As A Posthumous Tribute

Jun 12, 2014

A play this weekend at a State University of New York community college in the Hudson Valley will be performed in memory of a well-known figure in Ulster County.

SUNY Ulster’s Theater Department June 13 and 14 will perform A Day in Court, written by Ron Marquette, who was the college’s coordinator of community relations and special events until his death in 2013.

“His energy, his humor his ebullience were absolutely infectious,” says Collins. “And I said the term that people use was force of nature. Without a doubt, Ron was a force of nature.”
