48-CAPE GAZrEYWE, Friday; Aprtt--May ,1996 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Stepl00in Out Take "One Step Beyond" the usual at the Bottle & Cork By Kristen Seal If you are starting to feel as if you've heard one too many grunger wanna-be bands or Hootie covers lately, take a break from the 90s at the Bottle and Cork this weekend. The Virginia Beach-based band One Step Beyond prides itself on its large repertoire of 80s hits and considers its musical style "early 80s MTV music." Drummer Duke Simmons explained, "We play a lot of resort areas and really try to hit the college market. That age group grew up on that type of music, early British pop, and they always have fun and sing along at our shows." Simmons is joined by Scott Landry on guitar and vocals and Todd Washburn on guitar, key- boards and vocals. The three have been performing as One Step Beyond for nearly two years but worked together under the name of Panic for 14 years. Simmons explained that One Step Beyond has toured the East Coast from New York to Florida, tapping into the college circuit by landing gigs at the University of Georgia, North Carolina State University, Princeton University and many more. One Step Beyond has performed in Ocean City. Md. but never in the Dewey/Rehoboth area. "We've been wanting to get up there for years since we get such a good response in the beach towns we play," Simmons added. One Step Beyond's set list includes 80s favorites from such bands as Ah Ha, Men at Work, Devo, Big Country, Duran Duran, Flock of Seagulls and many more. Remember Gary Numan's "Cars" or "Our House" by Madness? These classics from the decade of day-glo and hairspray are not just stored in the MTV archives any- more. "This type of music is consid- ered 'retro' now which can't be a good thing because it means we are all getting older," Simmons joked. One Step Beyond will perform at the Bottle and Cork on Satur- day, April 27 along with the band Room With a View. For more information, call 227-8545.

These short comedies were writ- ten by David Ives and were per- formed most recently by Delaware Theatre Company. The directors of the production are Cape English teacher Aleta Thompson, senior Laura Connor and freshman Kerry Schab. Six comedies are in the newest version of "All in the Timing". In addition, the directors added another one from an earlier ver- sion of the play. There are 19 cast members performing these seven comedies, each with approximate- ly 15 minutes of stage time. The Thespians to comedies are rather diverse, each dealing with a different subject. "Sure Thing", performed by junior Sara Wolak and senior Ricky Parsons, is short comedy about true love in which every time a character makes a mistake in forming a relationship, a bell rings and they must start all over again. "Words, Words, Words", per- formed by juniors Heather Gibson and Matt Barnes and senior Paul Wright, transforms the famous writers Franz Kafka, John Milton and Jonathan Swift into monkeys who must type to infinity until they produce Shakespeare's "Hamlet". "The Universal Language", with seniors Michelle Bland and Jacy Ippolito, recounts the story of a woman who wants to learn an all-encompassing universal lan- guage called "Unamunda". perform "The Philadephia", with senior John Yilmaz, junior Karlin Maull and freshman Sarah Shields, is a comedy in which the main charac- ter must ask for the opposite of what she wants in order to receive anything. "Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread" stars senior Stephen Wil- son, sophomore Sarah McCarron and freshmen Tara McCredie and Mike Wright, is an experimental piece reminiscent of the work of avant garde composer Philip Glass. The lead character gets caught in a rhythmic state of inde- cisiveness in a bakery. "Variations on the Death of Trotsky", with senior Lindsay Weldin, sophomore Matt Wilcox and freshman Matt Cornelius, is a group of situations in which the Russian revolutionary Leon Trot- sky dies in a variety of ways.
