The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center will present its 60th anniversary Summer Season this year, with a wealth of artists, programs, and conferences on offer. 2024 marks 60 years since the new work development center was founded in 1964.

The season will begin with the National Puppetry Conference, welcoming artists from around the world to develop their skills and create new work, which will be showcased at the performances that conclude their time on campus. A selection of the conference’s masterclasses will also be available virtually, including those led by Andrew Kim, Sarah Frechette, Luís Viera, Rute Ribeiro, Kurt Hunter, Ryan Dillon, and Compagnie La Pendue.

The National Playwrights Conference will also return for the first time since 2019. The writers whose work will be developed are Keiko Green, Marvin González De León, Jesse Jae Hoon, Emma Horwitz, Rachel Mars, DJ Hills, LaDarrion Williams, and Chris Campbell. The National Music Theater Conference will include musicals by Kevin Wong, Tasha Gordon-Solmon, Faye Chiao, abs wilson, and Veronica Mansour.

The final program of the season will be the Cabaret and Performance Conference, featuring a 10-night performance line-up including Kate Baldwin, Phillip Boykin, Carol Lipnik, Bryan Eng, Natalie Douglas, Brad Simmons, Jon Weber, and the Cabaret Fellows and Junior Fellows of the program, who spend the conference under the tutelage of the Conference’s staff and guest artists.

“We are so encouraged by the resounding interest in the programs the O’Neill offers, reflected in the record number of applications we received this year. It was a competitive field of impressive, high caliber work” said Executive Director Tiffani Gavin. “As one of the few organizations still dedicated solely to supporting new works and new voices, it is proof that what we are doing is vital for the field. We look forward to supporting the growth of so many incredible artists and welcoming our community to engage with them. Since 1964, audiences here in Waterford have had a front row seat to their breakthroughs and have had a tremendous influence on the art that has become integral to American culture. We look forward to continuing that tradition this summer and for the next 60 years.”
