The Michigan Shakespeare Festival's Season Of Rebellion culminates with "The Killer Angels," a play by Karen Tarjan's adapted from the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Gettysburg novel by Michael Shaara.

"The Killer Angels" is presented in repertory with "As You Like It" and Richard II" in both summer venues - Potter Center at Jackson College in Jackson, Michigan, and The Village Theatre in Canton, Michigan from July 9 through Aug. 14.

The MSF continues its tradition of presenting two Shakespeare masterpieces and one other classic or pivotal piece. Adapted from Michael Shaara's 1974 Pulitzer Prize-Winning novel, "The Killer Angels" tells the story of the four days of the Battle of Gettysburg - from June 30, 1863, as the opposing troops moved into position, through July 1, 2, and 3 when the bloodiest of Civil War battles was fought.

Adapted by award-winning playwright Karen Tarjan, this epic drama is directed by MSF's Artistic Director Janice L Blixt for a glorious and stirring stage event which will be a Michigan theatrical premiere.

Playwright Karen Tarjan will be in attendance at the official opening performance of "The Killer Angels" on July 17 and will be participating in a talk-back directly following the 2 p.m. performance.
