An epic story of faith, hope and love told on Canada's largest outdoor stage

Weekends: July 1 -17




Each summer, in the heart of the Canadian Badlands, a group of actors, crew, and volunteers perform the story of the life of Christ on Canada’s largest outdoor stage.

Now in its 27th seasons, over 250,000 guests have experienced the Badlands Passion Play .

The play is performed on over 6 acres of playing space in the spectacular Badlands Amphitheatre.

Weather Policy
A performance is considered complete once Jesus has been sentenced by Pilate. In a storm, we do not use the crosses for the safety of our actors. As an outdoor production the Passion Play is performed in wet conditions, but there may be times when we need to pause the show for a short time to allow weather to pass. If it appears that dangerous conditions (lightning, wind, etc.) will develop, we will cancel the show and advise you to move to your vehicle. For the safety of all, please exit 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 another performance this season. Fill in the envelope in the center of your program and hand it to a parking attendant. 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 get you tickets for next season.
  2. Request ticket vouchers for a performance next season.
  3. Donate the cost of your tickets to the Passion Play for a tax receipt.

If you choose the second or third option you may mail your envelope to us at a later date. If you choose to leave when the show is paused and the show does resume, you will not receive vouchers for another performance.


Tickets for the Badlands Passion Play are divided into 2 levels – the Lower Bowl (Red) and the Upper Bowl (Blue). Every seat and section offers great views of the play.

Where you choose to sit depends on your preference.

Our Box Office can help you decide where to sit (403-823-2001) or you can choose your seat yourself by booking online.

Please note that there is a $5 ticket fee per ticket. Parking is $5 per vehicle in advance and $10 at the gate. Tickets are non-refundable.
