He will join the previously announced Florence Henderson, the musical theatre and "Brady Bunch" actress who will be seen on this season's "Dancing with the Stars."

MerryGoRound, according to press notes, "follows Daniel, a 21 year old, through his life’s joys, successes and failures. Set against a backdrop of relationships with his parents, grandparents and his girlfriend Annie, [the musical ] explores the consequences of hope, failure and redemption."

Conrad John Schuck made his Broadway debut in the original production of Annie and was also seen in the revivals of that musical and Irving Berlin's Annie Get Your Gun. His numerous screen appearances include "Macmillan & Wife," "M*A*S*H," "Outrageous Fortune," "Star Trek IV" and "Star Trek VI."

On Broadway Henderson was seen in Wish You Were Here, Fanny and The Girl Who Came to Supper, and she also starred in the national tour of The Sound of Music. Best known as Carol Brady on TV's "The Brady Bunch," Henderson's other screen credits include "The Love Boat," "Glitter," "Finder of Lost Loves," "Murder, She Wrote," "Roseanne," "Ally McBeal" and "For Heaven's Sake." She was a co-host of NBC's "Later Today," and was recently seen in the film "Venus and Vegas."

The Sherman Brothers penned the scores for such movie musicals as "Mary Poppins," "101 Dalmatians," "Winnie the Pooh," "The Jungle Book," "The Aristocats" and "Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang." Their theatre credits include Over Here, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins. They also wrote the most-played song on Earth, "It's a Small World (After All)," the tune that plays on a continual, multilingual loop every few minutes at Disney theme parks across the world.
