A technical upgrade to our scenic technology that will make it safer and inspire more creativity for our designers.

Road Less Traveled Productions doesn't just make new plays - it makes new plays better. We're a professional theatre company located in Buffalo, NY dedicated to the development and production of world premiere plays by Western New York playwrights. And we've been doing that for seven years - but now we need your help to continue pursuing our mission.

In order for our 2010-2011 season (and future seasons) to become a reality, we need to upgrade our scenic technology. We've been getting by on old, used, and/or substandard equipment since our inception. Now, Road Less Traveled has hit a roadblock; our equipment has outlived its usefulness and dependability, and has in fact become a liability. With the money we raise on Kickstarter, we will purchase a Rigid portable table saw, a Rigid compound mitre saw, a Rigid circular saw, an air compressor/nailer combo, and a brand new stapler. RLTP works with the greatest designers in Western New York, and some of our productions are the most technically ambitious in town. A technical upgrade won't just make construction safer for our designers, it will enable them to be more creative, more efficient, and more productive.

Please help RLTP continue to make new plays better - even better than we ever have before!
