"It's surprising how many kids come out and support a show like this," said Gary Simpson, assis- tant director of the UD Office of Alumni and University Relations and coordinator of the festival.

Not only are Bobby Rydell and Leslie Gore will perform their rock "n' roll oldies at the Summer Arts Festival in Lewes on Wednesday, July 8. they up and dancing, they are ac- tually mouthing the words to the songs."

His recording career has earned him 34 top-40 records, which puts him into the top five of all single artists from his era. His million- selling singles include "Volare," "Wild One" and "We Got Love." Rydeil is also an outstanding drummer, dancer and entertainer. He currently tours with Frankie Avalon and Fabian in a show titled, "The Golden Boys." Leslie Gore burst on the music scene as a junior in high school with the hit song, "It's My Party." Since that beginning in 1963, she has had more than two dozen chart hits and sold more than 60 million albums worldwide. Other Gore hits include "Judy's Turn to Cry" and "You Don't Own Me."
