In addition to Welles and Houseman, The Mercury Theatre troupe included Carl Frank, Joseph Cotten, Martin Gabel, Vincent Price, Agnes Moorehead, Ray Collins, Hans Conreid, Paul Stewart, Will Geer, George Coulouris, Olive Stanton, and Everett Sloane. Much of the troupe would later appear in Welles' films at RKO, particularly Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons.

Other future stars of the stage, screen, and television, like Betty Garrett, Anne Baxter, Judy Holliday, and Norman Lloyd, also appeared in productions in smaller parts. http://www.mercurytheatre.info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercury_Theatre http://www.archive.org/details/mercurytheaterorsonwelles Read more on Last.fm.
