"Western New York is an incredibly gifted and hard-working community," said RLTP Executive & Artistic Director Scott Behrend. "More than ever before, we are witnessing a remarkable level of community participation and community collaboration, which is part and parcel to our mission. Although we, too, work very hard to earn this support, we cannot understate the value of it. It is not a testament to Road Less Traveled alone; it's an indicator of where we want to go, as a community, together." Behrend continued, "We would like to thank each and every one of you involved in commitments of support for our 2012-2013 Season. Today and into the future, we walk this road together and we are very grateful."
