Although the group we went with was not religious, this is an amazing theatre opportunity in one of the most spectacular venues in the Canadian badlands. With over 200 volunteers, this is a great opportunity to see young actors learning their trade.

What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon/evening. Such an incredible landscape and such an incredible experience to take part in the outdoors...Where else can you get this kind of opportunity? For me, the story of Jesus' life never gets old -- it is the story of all stories. Get ready, come, and enjoy!!

The acting and the running of the site is mostly done by volunteers, who do a professional job. As regular church attenders, the play has special meaning for us. Jesus is a person of history and everyone who has the opportunity to attend should do so to learn more about who he was. We were there on the afternoon of... More

I had been putting off going to see this play for years, but finally relented after receiving free tickets. What a show! The huge cast involves a couple of professional actors, and the rest are volunteers, but all are absolutely terrific. The amphitheater is set in the beautiful Alberta Badlands, incredible natural scenery that is perfect for this event, no... More

The sets for this production are excellent and the production utilizes the stage and the surrounding hills. This provides a realistic setting... More

Amazing story set against a wonderful natural backdrop. The play is moving, intense and well worth the time to see it. The play is family-friendly, there were many younger children in the audience, as well as in the play itself. The staff and volunteers are friendly, courteous and helpful at every stage of the production. Definitely put this on your... More

My mom and I attended the 3 pm show and thoroughly enjoyed the performance. If you're religious or not, I would recommend seeing it. It's extremely well done and an amazing experience. We were lucky with the weather as it was slightly overcast. Otherwise, it would have been quite hot. Remember to bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, snacks and water.... More

Can you imagine an outdoor stage that is acres in size that includes actual cliffs and valleys? Now add to that the unbelievable colour and beauty of the Alberta Badlands and the fact that the acoustics are so good that the actors lines can be heard clearly over the vast distance without amphlication. It was wonderful and inspiring.
