Like a hero in a play, a longtime supporter of the Nashville Children's Theatre has come to the group's rescue.
Channel 4 News reported on the theater's financial concerns last month, as the company was $70,000 in the red - the first and biggest loss in its 82-year history.
The shortfall put financial aid programs in jeopardy, including programs that provide discounted tickets and camp scholarships to children who might not otherwise be exposed to the theater.
Staff put out a plea to donors, and the theater has since raised nearly $80,000, including $35,000 from one longtime donor.
