Eugene O'Neill Theater Center

WATERFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — President Barack Obama is giving the 2015 National Medal of Arts to a Connecticut organization.

The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford is being honored.

The ceremony is at the White House on September 22.

According to the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s website, at the center, “actors work with simply rendered sets, no costume design, and script in hand, revealing for the first time the magic of a new play or musical, puppetry piece or cabaret act.”

The National Endowment for the Arts works to support artistic excellence, creativity, and innovation for the benefit of individuals and communities.
