you gonna tile the wall?
or put some type of waterproofing on it?
most places dont allow drywall around tubs or showers anymore.
you can do anyting you like but i would say no to sheetrock myself

As mentioned, it all depends on what you're installing over the wallboard & how, if anything. Not enough info.

If you are going with drywall use green board.
If you are tiling it durock or some other tile backer.
