Renowned Hollywood Costumers Help With Historic Newburgh Production

Janet Stout and Luster Bayless have designed costumes for Hollywood legends, Bette Davis and John Wayne. Stout now lives in Newburgh, Ind. and is helping with the local theater production.
Historic Newburgh Theatre will present Alfred Hitchcock's The Unexplained October 4, 5 at 7:30 p.m. The performance will be held at Preservation Hall, Newburgh. 

Hollywood costumer, Janet Stout, is lending a hand to help with the costumes for the production. Stout now lives in Newburgh but was a costumer for Bette Davis and other leading ladies for years.
