68 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 14 - August 20, 1998 Neil Sedaka will perform at Dover Downs Slots Aug. 21-22 Legendary singer/songwriter Neil Sedaka will perform at Dover Downs Slots as part of the 1998 summer concert series on Aug. 21-22. Sedaka has written more than i,000 songs, including "Calendar Girl," "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do," and "Oh! Carol." These sOngs helped make Seda, ka one of the original creators of the New York City sound of the late 1950s and early 1960s, known as the "Brill Building Days," when the Brill Building was the center of the pop music world. Sedaka began writing songs at the age of 13, when he was intro- duced by his mother to a neighbor named Howard Greenfield. The two would craft a songwrit- ing career that is unparalleled in the era of popular music. "For a long period of time, we wrote a song a day," Sedaka said. Between 1959 and 1963, they sold more than 25 million records. Two No. 1 hits in the 1970s, "Bad Blood," and "Laughter in the Rain," heralded a comeback for Sedaka, that also gave rise to the career of Captain &amp; Tennille with the Grammy Award winning and worldwide No. 1 hit, "Love Will Keep Us Together." In the 1990s, Sedaka earned a platinum album with the release of "Timeless - The Very Best of Neil Sedaka." The compilation of both old and new songs has sold more than 500,000 copies. Tickets to see Sedaka in the Dover Downs Slots enclosed grandstand range from $22.50 to $45. Showtimes are 9 p.m., Fri- day, Aug. 21, and Saturday, Aug. 22.

Possums' 'Sylvia' a hit with local people; play to return to stage for one weekend, Aug. 28-30 "Sylvia," A.L. Gurney's hit off- 'Broadway show, is back in Sussex County by popular demand. Pre- sented at first as a dinner theatre this past winter by Possum Point Players, "Sylvia" has proved so popular that the Possums have de- cided to run it for one weekend only in August. Judy Dean, president of Possum Point Players, said, "This is the first time, in our 25-year history, that we have decided to do a pro- duction twice in one year. Our au- ' ' '" ' " "';' W ....... dmnceov,r-y4Va::,, hen we presented it as a':ttmnr theatre m JanuarY:iand we kept receiving re- quests f0r aneneore:e ', "When" our subscr{bers so over- whelmingly'agre e , well, W e listen. This is a very special case, mainly because 'Sylvia' hitsa chord in all of us. The writing :is great, and the directing, producing nd acting is Possum Point Playir'at our best," Dean said. Starring as Sylvia, local Milford resident Georgie Staley is hilari- ous as the dog. Fresh from her rave reviews as the nurse in "Har- vey," Staley is one of three cast members who have been involved in both "Harvey" and "Sylvia." Jim DeBastiani, who played El- wood (the Jimmy Stewart role), and Esther Friend, otherwise known as veta Elwood's sister, all have key roles in "Sylvia." DeB astiani plays[,the middle- aged man who take Sylvia, the dog, (Staley) home. Friend is the co-director Of 'Sylvia''' "The cast has a very special bond and working relationship with each other that is producing some very fine acting," Friend said. "The three of us have been working on shows together-for-the- last nine months and we have a type of understanding of each oth- er that you feel in the show. We are better than we were in Janu- ary, and we get better with each rehearsal." Tickets may be reserved for "Sylvia" by calling Possum Point Players' ticketline at 856-4560.
