Freda Welsh, executive director, said in a statement that “the technical setup of the show will not allow for last minute changes in location, so this decision is final.”

She reminded those attending the performance beginning at 7 p.m. at 170 Riverside Ave. that food and beverages are not allowed inside the auditorium.

This is the 35th season of the Levitt that will feature 50 nights of free entertainment this summer with a different format each evening to appeal to a broad range of ages and tastes.

She sold her toys and clothing as well as donations from her friends and gave all the income to Al’s Angels. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Stephen Rubin for WestportNow.com
