Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

I have seen this show a number of times and each time it was an awesome experience. The story is spectacular and the whole show is full of amazing detail. It's obvious that a TON of work goes into putting together the play each year. If you haven't seen this show yet you are missing out!

This is a play that anyone and everyone will enjoy. I know so many people who have gone to this and are astounded by the quality of these performances. I have been 3 times to this play, and plan on being there again this year. Wind, rain, or shine, this play will go on! Many years of history and countless hours put in by volunteers make this an unforgettable experience. Even if you have seen this in the past it is definitely something worth seeing again.

I've known about the Passion Play for years but finally went last year. I've been to live theatre performances in westend London, England, broadway shows and have seen movie stars like Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, Neve Campbell act live. I've been entertained by Shaolin Monks kung fu, circus du soleill and basically, a lot of live performances, thought I've seen everything. WOW... I was ignorant about the Passion Play in Alberta, an absolute gem of Alberta and live theatre performance on a league of its own. I do not want to ruin anything for people that have not seen it before but it is absolutely unique and spectacular from the outdoor environment, the cast, the story, basically the experience, pre and post show in the most beautiful area of rural Alberta, beside the town of Rosebud. The message is timeless and the experience amazing, does not matter if you believe in the Passion of Christ or not, it is worth your time.

This is the 3rd time I have attended the play. This time I brought 5 other people with me. They all enjoyed the play and were very glad that they had the opportunity to go. The costumes were fabulous and the seats were awesome. We could hear the words of the actors very well..This is a fine production and the story is one of the greatest ever.
