Twelve performers making their Broadway or Off-Broadway debuts this season were named winners of the 68th annual Theatre World Awards on Tuesday.

One winner, Hettienne Park was cited for two productions—"Seminar" and "The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism & Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures"—since she made both her Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts in those shows during the same season. Tony-nominee Jeremy Jordan, who appeared in both "Bonnie & Clyde" and currently appears in "Newsies" this season, was just noted for his debut in "Bonnie & Clyde."

Previous winners include such luminaries as Meryl Streep, Marlon Brando, James Earl Jones, Alan Alda, and Bernadette Peters. The 2012 winners were chosen by a committee comprised of David Cote of Time Out New York, Joe Dziemianowicz of New York Daily News, Peter Filichia of the Newark Star-Ledger, Harry Haun of Playbill, Matthew Murray of Talkin' Broadway, Frank Scheck of the New York Post, and Linda Winer of Newsday.

The awards will be presented on June 5 at an invitation-only ceremony at a theater to be announced. In addition, the Dorothy Loudon Award for Excellence in the Theatre, honoring an outstanding Broadway or Off-Broadway performance, will be presented to Susan Pourfar for "Tribes." This award is chosen by the trustees for the Dorothy Loudon Foundation with recommendations by the Theatre World Awards committee.

The winners of the 2012 Theatre World Awards are below.

Tracie Bennett, "End of the Rainbow"
