Over one hundred volunteer cast, professional actors, and crew present the life, death, and resurrection story of Christ in the Badlands Amphitheatre located just outside of Drumheller, Alberta. 

The Badlands Passion Play is a 3 hour outdoor performance (including a 30 minute intermission) 

Doors open one hour prior to the performance. Though your seat is assigned, please arrive early to enjoy services like the gift shop and concession. For best seats or a block of seats, reserve ahead.

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.

Refund Policy

All tickets to the Badlands Passion Play are final. We do not offer any refunds. However, a ticket to the play is never lost. If a performance is cancelled, your ticket will be good for another performance. Or if you would like, you can donate the cost of your ticket and you will receive a tax deductible receipt.
