While retooling Shakespeare isn’t always the best idea, it’s hard to fault Wolfbane Productions for the liberties they’ve taken with their encore production of  Romeo & Juliet . The Appomattox-based troupe have access to a national landmark – Appomattox Court House National Park (111 National Park Dr.) – that embodies the essence of feuding families and tragic star crossings, so they’ve moved the tale of the Capulets and the Montagues into the Civil War era. Performances run through June 30 on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 8 p.m. The park opens to visitors two hours prior to performances. Plastic folding chairs are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and you can also bring your own lawn/camp chair. General admission tickets are $25, with students, seniors, and military receiving a $5 discount; the $35 premium seating tickets include a chair.
