Basic cement board/drywall install question

Hi all-
Okay, I am brand new at this, but excited to learn a new skill. So I apologize for the really simple questions. This site is great! Context: I am just about to strip down my small bathroom's lathe/plaster walls (including around the tub/shower) and redo the whole thing...

1) From the studs out, what do I need to put on the walls? The bathroom is small enough that I don't mind making the entire room as waterproof as what will go behind the shower. On my bathtub/shower walls, I'm going to put up cultured marble. But from the studs to the marble, what do I need?

Thanks

You need to put up durock or hardibacker in the shower where the tile will go. The ceiling needs to be regular drywall. The rest of the walls can be regular drywall or green board if you like. Green board ,imo, is a waste of money.
