THEATRICALS.

THE first Theatrical Entertainment for the benefit of the Harvard Boat Club took place at Horticultural Hall last evening. The house was crowded with a most enthusiastic and appreciative audience. The programme consisted of a comedietta, entitled "A Happy Pair," and the burlesque, "William Tell with a Vengeance." Messrs. Bowditch and Shaw, '75, took part in the comedietta, and rendered the witty and sparkling dialogue with unusual vivacity and naturalness. The abrupt change of manner, in both roles, was particularly well done; and the acting of both gentlemen was accompanied with remarkable ease of manner.

The burlesque was a most decided success from beginning to end. The statement is categorical, and is meant to be. Where all was so excellent, it is difficult to select any particular feature for praise. Mr. Wetmore's Sarnem was, in the line of the highest of tragedy, simply perfect. Mr. Hooper was most imposing as Gesler; and Mr. Dumaresq a most graceful young Tell. The bear performed with wonderful zoological accuracy, his conception of the part being most artistic. In fine, from the first chorus to the tragic denouement, the audience was in a continuous ripple of laughter, with frequent outbursts into a roar.

To-night will be given the comedietta "Which is Which," the farce "One too Many for Him," with a Negro Interlude; and the programme of Thursday will be repeated on Saturday afternoon.
