Reagle Music Theatre was founded in the summer of 1969 as an outlet for talented high school and college students by Robert J. Eagle, a Waltham Public Schools teacher and administrator, who received a grant from the Waltham City Council to support a summer theatre. The superintendent of schools thought this was a good use of the empty school theatres, and he arranged the rent-free use of the theatres, the Robinson and the Crawford. In subsequent years, because no grant funds were available, the players embarked on an endless round of bake sales, car washes, and auctions in order to support the summer theatre. During those early years, as the group became better known, people from other communities joined. From the outset, Reagle’s purpose has been to produce the most professional productions possible, while providing unique educational, recreational, and entertainment opportunities for its members. Even in 1969, careful research was done on the original Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel, and a full orchestra was engaged in order to reach the standard established by Mr. Eagle.
