ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) - Police in southern Oregon are on the
lookout for a crook dressed to lead 76 trombonists - or to troop
across the moors.
Somebody broke into the costume shop at the Oregon Shakespeare
Festival last weekend. They made off with hats and coats designed
for "The Music Man" and "Macbeth" productions opening next
Among the missing items: two of Professor Harold Hill's jackets
and a gray straw boater. The "Macbeth" cast is minus a black
military overcoat, a uniform jacket and other overgarments.
Festival spokeswoman Amy Richard says only the clothing was
taken - cell phones and a digital camera were left behind.
