The playbill was printed in Boston by F. A. Searle. Playbill #1 has a miniscule piece missing from the middle right edge. Playbill #2 has a tiny hole and slight tear on the middle right hand edge. Playbills #2 and #4 have what appears to be shadow of glue reside at their top and bottom corners.

    There were several Tremont Theaters in Boston. This one was opened in February 1863 by under the management of Mrs. Jane English. Within a year the name of the theater was changed to the New Tremont Theatre and later to the Tremont Theatre. This venue offered variety shows, operas, and stage plays. It was not very successful, however, and was out of business within a decade.
