The Road Less Traveled Theatre, a non-profit professional theatre group based in North Carolina, is pleased to present two programs geared toward educators and educational employees, and to announce dates for the upcoming performances of 'Poe: The Elevation of Decay.'

'Poe: The Elevation of Decay' in Kinston, Creedmoor, NC
'Poe: The Elevation of Decay' is an original dramatic interpretation of several of Edgar Allan Poe's works, including 'Annabelle Lee,' 'The Raven,' 'The Cask of Amontillado,' and many more. Far from a straightforward stage piece, this event incorporates live action, pre-recorded video, and maybe even a few surprises!

Adapted and directed by Mitchell W. Butts and Kevin Holmes, the show stars RLTT veterans Joey Humbert, Ron Jones, Nicholas Turner, Noah Wall, Geniann Humbert, Daniel Gierasch, and John Henry among others. RLTT co-founder and original Creative Director Megan Day will be featured in a taped segment for ‘Israfel’, while current Creative Director and President Mitchell W. Butts will perform ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’. Executive Director Kevin Holmes, will also be showcased as he performs his interpretation of Poe’s classic ‘The Raven’.

'Poe: The Elevation of Decay' Opens November 4th at Waller Auditorium, Lenoir Community College, Kinston, NC and November 5th at South Granville High School in Creedmoor, NC. Ticket prices are $10 for Adults and $8 for students and seniors for advance tickets. Night of show tickets are $12 for Adults and $10 for students and seniors.

Groups larger than 20 people, please contact the RLTT box office (919) 529-1169 for pricing information.

Curtain time is 8:00pm.

Tickets are available online at http://www.roadlesstraveledtheatre.com/tickets.asp. RLTT accepts all major credit and debit cards through their secure online ticketing system.

In addition, the Road Less Traveled Theatre announces it's new Education Discount program extended to all employees of schools and their families.

All active school and college employees, will receive a discount of approximately 40% off our standard ticket prices. For our upcoming production of 'Poe: The Elevation of Decay' November 4th at Waller Auditorium, Lenoir Community College, Kinston, NC and November 5th at South Granville High School in Creedmoor, NC, this means that adult tickets - normally $10 - are only $6 and our regular $8 student/senior ticket is available for a special price of $5.

These are advance sale prices; prices at the door are $7 and $6, respectively. Door prices for our other patrons will remain $12 and $10.

Road Less Traveled Theatre Announces Free Educational Material for Classrooms
The Road Less Traveled Theatre of North Carolina announces the coming release of free educational material for schools and teachers. The material will consist of a packet of background historical information and suggestions for classroom-based activities that teachers might like to encourage students to take part in for extra class credit, independent projects, or to fulfill other planned project goals.

These packets will be made available online as a printable PDF file so that instructors, curriculum planners, and administrators can review it on their PC or print it for use in the classroom.

The purpose of the packets is to help educators identify opportunities and appropriate methods for integrating information about various points of history and literature. Typically they will be written in conjunction with RLTT performances.

The first release will consist of material related to our current production, 'Poe: The Elevation of Decay,' and is currently in creation by RLTT's creative director Mitchell W. Butts and executive director Kevin R. Holmes. This information is being designed to target students at the middle and high school levels; material for other shows might target older or younger students as appropriate.

"It is our goal to continue offering programs of this nature that tie in to all upcoming productions. We hope that you will find our material useful and our shows entertaining and educational. We believe that our programs represent an innovative and effective method of raising interest in the arts, literature, and history, and we look forward to working with the educators of North Carolina and beyond in the future," said Executive Director Kevin Holmes in a statement.
