Overview

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.

If you find yourself in central Alberta when the Passion Play is on, be sure to go!! Outdoors, in a natural amphitheater. A unique live theatre experience. An accurately portrayed Christian experience. Water and sun hats are must haves. No protection from the sun. A...More

Loved King Harod. The play and actors were great. The benches a little hard. Do bring cushions. The setting is so wonderful and it doesn't matter where you sit because you can see great from any spot.

Our site is definitely one of the most iconic situations for our play and also the Badlands Amp concert series.

This production was amazing! Made even more so when we found all the actors were albertain amateurs and volunteers. The setting is absolutely spectacular.
