The Reagle Players in Waltham, Mass. brings its 40th anniversary season to a close this week with the Roaring '20s musical No, No, Nanette.

The season finale is directed by company founder Robert J. Eagle and also stars Russell Rhodes as Billy, Harold "Jerry" Walker as Jimmy, Mary Jane Houdina as Sue, Jessica Greeley as Nanette, Jason Michael Butler as Tom, Whitney Snow as Flora, Alyssa Trasher as Betty, and Lenni Kmiec as Winnie. Making her stage debut as smart-talking maid Pauline is Waltham Mayor Jeannette A. McCarthy. Choreography is by Eileen Grace with musical direction by Jeffrey P. Leonard, Dan Rodriguez and Rick Scalise.
