Deep in the Canadian Badlands, a location famous for its prehistoric attractions, lies a hidden valley where the events of a not-so-distant past echo, a place where ancient Israel is reborn and you can experience, "the greatest story ever told." The 14,000 who come each July are moved to laughter and tears by the dramatic portrayal of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Watch as the characters in the bible come alive relive the enactment of the bible. From the beginning of Jesus to the final goodbye of our Jesus. Very powerful and exciting to experience. There is a recess in between two sets washrooms and a snack bar and gift shop

The natural amphitheatre, the historic scene of Christ, lends to the drama just steps from your seat...there are no real bad seats, front row you may have actors at your feet....the acoustics are very cool...its all unwired....just their natural voices....as if they are beside you....well worth the trip!!!!

Never before have I experienced a play such as this, to leave me with all the hairs on my arms & the back of my neck standing up on end!! 'Moving' is an understatement.

The Passion a Play in drumheller is absolutely beyond belief. The life of Christ is portrayed beautifully in a setting unlike any other. It is very hard to believe that a small town like drumheller can pull thus off with such grace and touch the hearts of so many. This is a MUST SEE!

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

Read about the Badlands Passion Play in the AMA magazine, voted in the top 10 of American Bus Drivers Associations Attractions...so must be good? 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
