ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Steppin Out Bounce on over to the Frogg Pond to catch Boink! May 2-3 By Jen ElUngsworth Maryland-based alternative rock trio BOINK: will make a double- header appearance at the Frogg Pond on First Street in Reboboth Beach on Friday and Saturday, May 2-3. BOINK! is thethird in a series of musical ventures by accom- plished singer, songwriter and composer Richard Walton, whose CDs "Savannah Blue" and "Out of Bounds" have received airplay on many North American radio sta- tions, is no stranger to the resort scene. Walton is joined by fellow BOINK! members Eric Robertson and Bill Dumas, who are equally accomplished in their respective independent careers as well. Robertson, a percussionist who can also be seen performing with contemporary jazz ensemble, The Richard Walton Group, has per- formed in a variety of musical venues. His musical career also includes work with recognized songwriter Rivers Cuomo, who is now leader of Geffen recording artists Weezer. Bill Dumas, a vocalist/gui- tarist/songwriter who most recent- ly performed in Maryland with a successful six-piece band named The Zone, has crossed paths with Walton many times throughout his musical career. The two com- bined their strong vocal harmonies and song-writing skills to form the 80s group The Buzzy Fretton Duo. In addition, Dumas has received airplay and song-writing awards for his original compositions, including the composition "Coho Winds," which is featured on Wal- ton's "Savannah Blue" release. He also has two independent recordings, "Youth in Asia" and "Surrender Dorothy." BOINK! performs a spectrum of modern rock cover and original songs. At any given performance, you can expect to hear cover tunes from eclectic artists including XTC, Afghan Wigs, Elvis Costel- 1o, Smithereens, Cheap Trick, Tears for Fears and Matthew Sweet. However, it's the band's diver- sifted style that has set it apart. Original songs like "Angela," "Blinded by the Truth," "Island in the Rain" and "Wish I Could Find a Way" have created a sound geared to please audiences of all shapes and sizes. Walton, who has been entertain- ing jazz lovers in Rehoboth Beach since the mid-80's, also writes songs for other artists. He is a self-taught musician who has worked with a wide variety of artists, including Badfin[er, Crack the Sky, Poco and Steve Hackett of Genesis.

With performances set for Friday, May 2 and Satur- day, May 3, both at 7:30 p.m., the cast and crew are diligently work- ing toward a final, and very enter- taining show. The play will be directed by Jacob Norfleet, who graduated from Cape in 1995. This is his first directorial experience where he is in charge, which he said was "quite a responsibility." Norfleet is assisted by Thespians' sponsors Chris King and Aleta Thompson. Set in 1942 Yonkers, New show won the 1991 Pulitzer Prize for drama. The main plot of the play deals with teenagers Jay and Arty, played by freshmen Kevin Clark and senior Karl Chalabala, who have to live with their grand- mother while their father, Eddie, played by junior Matt Wilcox, travels the nation selling scrap metal to pay off a debt to a loan shark. There seems to be something wrong with everyone in the fami- ly, from the mean grandmother, played by senior Heather Gibson; to mentally-challenged Aunt Bel- la, portrayed by junior Sarah McCarron; gangster Uncle Louie, sophomore Matt CorneliuS; and the asthmatic Aunt Oert, sopho- more Sarah Shields.
