Was searching around for things to do in Drumheller when I came across the Badlands Passion Play. The story was great and the natural stage setting just adds to the experience of the audience. It is as if I am watching the story in person back in time 2000+ years ago. Definitely worth the watch if you happen to be... More

Was very surprised to hear none of my friends or coworkers had been. Anyway we finally went and it was awesome. A lovely hot summer day in the badlands, took a picnic and enjoyed the play.... More

My wife and I travelled to the badlands on a cool day on September 2. Turned out to be perfect to explore all that the region has to offer. I would say all attractions are worth stopping for, EXCEPT for Dorothy & Wayne ghost towns... Waste of time, nothing there! Have fun!

I was unprepared for the impact of outdoor theatre! The producers of this play really used the setting of the 'badlands' to their fullest advantage. So much going on but all aspects of the Story were well told. I went into the play grumbling about the cost but left feeling I should have paid twice as much! Very well done!... More

This was another place that our tour stopped at with Don and Val. Would be wonderful to watch a play there. Reminds you of walking into an ancient time of theatre. Would love to go there and actually see a play. Our tour provided us with the history on how the place was built, the actors that play there and... More

This play is so wonderful. It really feels like you are part is the story. The badlands backdrop is so amazing too at adding authenticity to the play. It is not however for young children. My son was 8 and at points he was a little scared. I would not bring children younger then this. It is a must see... More

The Canadian Badlands Passion play isn't just a story, it's an experience. If you are a follower of Christ , an apprentice if you will, then this re-inactment should mobilize you to action , to a call to defend and follow Christ with all your heart. The play will reawaken the call of our hearts to tell and share who... More

I am not a religious person but heard great things about this play and I was not disappointed. I was even moved to tears a few times. The story was well told and it was an interesting and unique venue. Highly recommend! Just don't forget your seat cushions.
