Wolfbane’s Romeo and Juliet is set

Wolfbane Productions, in association with Jamerson Building Supply, Williams Collision Center and the Appomattox 1865 Foundation, is set to present Wolfbane’s Romeo and Juliet outside at Appomattox Court House NHP, 111 National Park Dr., Appomattox, from June 1-July 1, according to a press release.

Gates open at 7 p.m.; the show will begin at 8 p.m. Wolfbane’s Romeo and Juliet is “sure to please both theatre and history lovers alike with a hometown twist on this Shakespearean favorite,” according to the release.

“Wolfbane’s Romeo and Juliet is an original adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic tale set during the Civil War,” according to the release. “Audiences will witness the tragic end of star-crossed lovers while the nation surrounding them is reunited through peace. Wolfbane has assembled a truly impressive ensemble of both local and New York-  based performers. Jack Fellows as Romeo and Simone Elizabeth Bart as Juliet, both making their Wolfbane debut, will helm the title characters with Patrick Michael Joyce (Broadway’s Rock of Ages) as Mercutio, Marshall Taylor Thurman as Paris, Christopher Trindade as Tybalt, and, Wolfbane favorite, Beverly Owens as Nurse. Rounding out the cast are Luke Milhoan, Ellee Evans, Kelly Malone Dudley, Joshua Boyce, Timothy Read, Colin Coviello, Krishon Preston, Mayalin Quinones and Jumpin’ Jim Robertson. Wolfbane’s Romeo and Juliet will be led by production stage manager, Christine Yepsen, with script and stage direction from Wolfbane’s founding artistic director, Dustin Williams.”
