NATIONAL ALLIANCE for MUSICAL THEATRE

Waltham West Suburban Chamber of Commerce


Acknowledgement Dear Friend, It seems like only yesterday when an enthusiastic group of Waltham High School students and recent graduates asked to present a summer show. Who would have thought that forty-five years later, the seeds planted by those talented teens and young adults would grow into a fully professional summer theatre that has garnered numerous awards and entertained hundred of thousands? From the outset, the partnership with the Waltham Public Schools has been integral to our growth and development. None of this would be possible without the enduring support and encouragement of you, our faithful audience. In the words of Shakespeare, “I can no other answer make but thanks and thanks and ever thanks.” Sincerely,

Robert J. Eagle Producing Artistic Director

Who’s Who ? ROBERT J. EAGLE (Producing Artistic Director) founded the Reagle Music Theatre in 1969, thus beginning a tradition of theatrical excellence that has attracted thousands to Waltham for summer shows, celebrity concerts, original musical revues, and children’s musical theatre camps. Bob believes that blending the talents of professional and amateur performers is the best educational route to follow in order to reach a high professional standard. He established a unique relationship with the Waltham Schools forty-five years ago, long before such partnerships were recommended in statewide curriculum frameworks. Reporter Jared Bowen’s research uncovered several colleges and professional theaters with similar relationships, but no others at the K-12 level. The Waltham West Suburban Chamber of Commerce has honored Bob with its Community Achievement Award; and the Waltham City Council has recognized and gratefully acknowledged Bob and the Reagle Music Theatre “for contributing significantly to the cultural, social, educational, and business aspects of Waltham and the West Suburban Region.” He received an IRNE Award for his co-direction of My One And Only, and in 2004 the IRNEs honored him with a special award for Sustained Excellence. GERRY McINTYRE (Director and Choreographer) has directed and choreographed at the Lions Theatre (OffBroadway), Virginia Stage, Actors Theatre of Louisville, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Connecticut Repertory Theatre (2013 Connecticut Critics Circle award for his choreography of Hairspray), LaMirada

Theatre (Drama Logue and Robby awards, Ovation nomination for Once On This Island), and the Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma, as well as television programs such as “The Rosie O’Donnell Show.” He served as associate director and choreographer for the national tour of Dreamgirls, and he won a BroadwayWorld Award for Best Choreography of Chicago at the Ogunquit Playhouse. On Broadway, Gerry has performed in Once On This Island, Anything Goes with Patti LuPone, Joseph...Dreamcoat, Uptown...It’s Hot with Maurice Hines, Chicago, and A Christmas Carol with Tim Curry. He performed in National Tours of Chicago (Billy Flynn) and Whistle Down the Wind.

Who’s Who ? thousands to Waltham for summer shows, celebrity concerts, original musical revues, and children’s musical theatre camps.

The Waltham West Suburban Chamber of Commerce has honored Bob with its Community Achievement Award, and the Waltham City Council has recognized Bob and the Reagle Music Theatre “for contributing significantly to the cultural, social, educational, and business aspects of Waltham and the West Suburban Region.” Bob received a Special 2004 IRNE Award for Sustained Excellence. DAVID HUGO (Director) is currently a professor at Long Island University (CW Post Campus) where he teaches acting and musical theater performance. During his college years at Syracuse University, he discovered a love for directing when he directed Little Shop of Horrors and West Side Story in a small community theater in his hometown of Dryden, New York. After college, he found great success as an actor, performing regionally and on Broadway in a number of shows—his favorites being Les Misérables and Jekyll and Hyde. He understudied Terrence Mann as Javert in the final Broadway Company of Les Misérables, and he has performed in Les Misérables in China, Korea, Singapore, Canada and the USA. He has worked with Sutton Foster, Terrence Mann and Kelli O’Hara, as well as Tony Award winning directors Trevor Nunn and John Caird, and choreographer Jerry Mitchell. Seven years ago, David retired from acting to pursue a career teaching acting, and this is when he started to direct again.

In the last three years, he has conceived and directed three pieces: Numb, an anti-war piece using the music and lyrics of Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht; Shakespeare Cabaret, a cabaret using only music and scenes inspired by Shakespeare; and New York Cabaret – Cabaret Reinvented, a cabaret using iconic NYC songs. David is thrilled to be invited to direct Les Misérables at Reagle Music Theatre, and he hopes that he can bring to this production the heart and soul for which Les Misérables is known. He would like to thank his wife, daughter, family and friends for all their support through this rollercoaster of a career.
