A must see! The cast does a wonderful job at presenting the life of Christ with his disciples. A beautiful setting. Well run, clean, the food was good.

Most everyone knows about the Calgary Stampede at this time of year, but very few know that if you go 2 hours NE of Calgary into the Badlands, this annual gem is performed. I've seen the historic Oberammergau Passion play and while the Badlands play can't compete with the amazing backstory, history and commitment of the one in Germany, I feel the one in Canada is actually better in terms of setting, and a more full-bodied story. This only takes place for 3 weekends a year in July. It goes rain or shine so be prepared for unpredictable weather...which sometimes adds to the experience for me.

I attended the Badlands Passion Play for the first time in 2015 and was so impressed with that production; it had a long lasting affect on me. I was so excited to return again this year with a couple of friends. But I am sad to say that I was extremely dissappointed that the play is now a musical. To me, I feel that the musical performance did not evoke the deep emotional connection to the story of Jesus as did the excellent acted play I saw in 2015. With a musical the focus seems to be on the singing which to me does not compare to a well acted performance. The ressurection of Jesus was underwhelming, it was not portrayed as a happy & joyous occasion. Also it seemed to me that there was too much focus on Simon Peter, it felt at times like he was the main character, not Jesus. The play was a bit too long and at times felt tedious. There is a tremedous amount of hard work that goes into creating this performance, so kudos to all involved in this production. I did enjoy some aspects of this play and the beautiful setting, I just prefer the non-musical version more.

The setting is amazing and all seats have a great view but you need to take a cushion. The volunteer staff are to be commended from parking to the amphitheater seating and performers. Sound quality was good. When the angels suddenly appeared atop the surrounding hills it brought tears to my eyes, so moving!

This play was a much higher caliber event than I expected. One of the best plays I have ever attended. Highly recommend.
