It is truly the greatest story ever told. Not a dull moment. Can't believe the play is put on by some many volunteers. It is very professional from start to finish. It is well worth the drive to Drumheller. Wonderful, wonderful.

Our family attended the Passion Play and were impressed with the performance. We were taken back in time and felt like we were witnessing Jesus' passion. The costumes and props were excellent and the crucifixion scene was very realistic. The cast put on on excellent performance

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.
