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.

Everything about this production was first class. The acting and storytelling was awesome. The stage setting was awesome. And it's awesome spending an afternoon in such a beautiful and scenic environment. It's a story that has been told for 2000 years, and yet, it felt fresh and alive and energetic with the performance. The only sad part is that it... More

What an outstanding performance. Excellent setting, feels like you are in the Holy Land. Excellent volunteers who looked after our well-being. Everyone - Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindu, all people should see this for a better understanding of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

It is difficult to summarize such a unique and memorable performance. More than simply a piece of theatre, this is an experience that you will take with you long after your travels. As a theatre practitioner, this performance was world class and rivaled the theatre that I had seen earlier in my trip on Broadway. Stunningly executed by a director... More

The production is excellent and the back drop brings the play alive.We were in Germany 5 years ago for their Passion Play. We found this to be superior as the setting is so perfect! We would highly recommend it to all. Also so friendly and welcoming

We saw the last show of the season and it was a great experience. The show is very well done, the actors are great and the natural bowl of the area makes a wonderful amphitheatre with great acoustics. As this is a rain or shine event, we got both. Storm clouds started moving in as the play moved towards the... More

This was amazing of how Jesus life was played out & the settings were amazing as well. It was a 3 hour play & a real experience to watch it. I recommend that everyone who hasn't been or seen the passion play should see it. You do need to get tickets for this & also come prepared for the weather.... More

What a well performed, well run, fun event. I was very happy and felt the money well spent. it was a bit long (bring a cushion for sure) but the time flew by as there was always something going on and moving it forward. I was particularly impressed with how well organized it was from parking to bathroom use at... More
