The Badlands Passion Play
"I have never experienced anything like this."
Every summer, hundreds of actors take to the largest outdoor stage in Canada to bring this epic story of faith, hope, and love to life Be carried back 2000 years and witness the dramatic portrayal of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in an acoustically superb natural amphitheatre in Drumheller, Alberta. Each ticket will be subject to a $4 service fee. All sales are final. Please see our Weather Policy for more details.
For the safety of our actors, we cannot use the crosses in adverse weather conditions, and a performance is considered complete once Jesus has been sentenced by Pilate. As an outdoor production, the Passion Play will continue running in wet conditions, but there may be times when we must briefly pause the show to allow weather to pass. During this hiatus, we ask that you wait for instructions from the Amphitheatre. If you choose to leave, but the show ends up resuming, you will not be eligible for the Rain Show options below. If it is deemed by the theatre that dangerous conditions (lightning, high winds, etc.) may develop, we will cancel the show and advise you to move to your vehicle in a controlled manner.
If the show is cancelled before Jesus is sentenced by Pilate you have the following options:
1. Request ticket vouchers for an alternative performance this season. Fill in the envelope in the centre of your program and hand it to a parking attendant as you leave. We will contact you as soon as possible to accommodate your request. If we do not call then we have been unable to fit you into the current year and will be providing you with ticket vouchers for next season.
2. Request ticket vouchers for next year's Passion Play.
3. Donate the cost of your tickets to the Passion Play for a tax receipt.
