Dawn Cleveringa wrote company checks for herself and forged signatures between 2006 and 2009 to siphon off thousands of dollars while working at the theater in Branson, Mo.
She pleaded guilty to theft and forgery earlier this month, and was sentenced to 60 days in prison and five years' probation, and was ordered to hand back every penny she stole.

Cleveringa apologized in court and insisted she had used the money for medical needs. Her lawyer told the hearing that the cash was also used to pay off her medical bills.
Williams is currently battling bladder cancer and returned home from the hospital in July.
