Mayor Jon Mitchell on Tuesday ceremoniously renamed the section of Purchase Street in front of the Zeiterion Theatre as "Hollywood Boulevard."  

The change is part of the celebration of New Bedford Festival Theatre's summer musical "Singin' In The Rain."

Andrew Chartier has one of the lead roles as Don Lockwood and says Singin' In The Rain is a show for all ages.

The show opens on July 26 and will run through the weekend and the following weekend.

There are still tickets available and they can be purchased by calling the box office at 508-994-2900.
