The Eugene O'Neill Theater Center has announced cast members for the final two shows of the 2012 National Music Theater Conference.

The professionalism with which they bring characters to life enables our resident authors and composers to objectively learn what yet remains to be written to convey the intended storylines. We are grateful for the superb talent that joins us this and every summer."
