Knave snags Shakespeare Festival costumes

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 month.

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.
