I was invited to attend with family. We booked a hotel room late so there wasn't a lot of selection I took 6 people to the Passion Play this year and it was well recieved, even by the teens in our We booked a hotel room late so there wasn't a lot of selection there however the Play was well worth the drive.

The second half got rained out and it was still worth it. While we were waiting I took 6 people to the Passion Play this year and it was well recieved, even by the teens in our group.

The acting is superb, and I am not a fan of plays or theatre. I never enjoyed musicals, either, but there was something We attended the show on Sunday July It was worth waiting through a horrendous wind and rain storm to see the show.

The staff were amazing in accommodating us through the delay and arranging alternate seating when our seats were flooded. The performance was Fantastic, would highly recommend this as a MUST see item.

The large cast are all terrific.! The setting is perfect. Fabulous job by everyone. The large amount of volunteers incredible They move the people in and about very efficiently.

The Passion Play at the Badlands Amphitheatre was magnificent. There are moments that literally take your breath away.

Everything from parking to the concession was very efficient. I can't recommend this enough. Do bring a cushion or blanket to sit on though, as the benches Excellent performance!

Front row ideal. Performers put their heart and soul into the show. Very authentic feel being outside. We brought our own seat cushions to sit on.

There is an intermission where the golf carts come, so we The Drumheller Passion play has added live music this year and they never cease to amaze me, It is so inspiring and the volunteers are all so friendly and willing to help, I got a smoking deal of two for one tickets so I was Very well done show, our fourth visit and each one has been very different.

Love the show and the venue! When I was in Drumhellar, I went inside of a T. Of course this is only a model of one.. Even for grown ups, this is a very educational tour.

You can even go on tours to look for dinasaur bones. Very good show it was great very exciting very interested best show in valley very great performance and performers would go see it again.

In the year , the Jerusalem Wall Project opened its first phase. The project meant to replicate on a smaller scale the actual Jerusalem Wall in Israel. The Jerusalem Wall through the years has housed many services including a black box theatre and interpretive museum , but is currently home to a concession, gift shop, wardrobe , armoury, production offices, and a rehearsal space.

In , partly in response to declining ticket sales, the production was completely updated with a new script based on the Gospel According to Matthew, by Royal Sproule, and new music by Bill Hamm.

Auditions were held province-wide, the musical instrumentation was expanded, and a character was added as a narrator to help the audience follow changes of time and location in the storyline. It was commemorated with a heritage coffee table book with photographs that focus on the past five years of performances.

Playwright Royal Sproule wrote a new script that focused on retelling the life of Christ through the eyes of the Apostle John.

The choir moved from the Choir Loft to joining the actors on stage, and the play ran for seven nights instead of six. The Passion Play also debuted a new sound reinforcement system for its performances.

This three-dimensional sound system enhances the audiences' audio experience, and strategically places sound both voice and music to keep the audience engaged as the visual action unfolds in front them.

This modification not only assists those who have difficulty hearing, but also allows the entire audience to feel more like they are a part of the action.

Unify our community around common projects and encourage tourism by creating significant cultural attractions. Although the details of the script often change from year to year, the story usually spans 3 hours and is not limited to portraying only the final hours of Christ the traditional " Passion of the Christ ".

Unlike many Passion Plays around the world, the Badlands Passion Play also dramatizes the life, ministry, and resurrection of Jesus.

Action occurs on every viewable space, including the set, the hills, and the audience area. The performance occurs in nearly any weather, with the exception of weather that threatens the safety of viewers or performers.

Musical underscoring is a powerful element of the show. The play is infused with choral and instrumental music, as well as onstage singing and playing by cast members.

The original choir pulled from English and Hebrew religious texts , as well as providing a dramatic vocalise style underscoring some scenes on stage.

From to , the music was written by Bill Hamm, a professor at Rosebud School of the Arts, and central figure in the Rosebud Theatre. This music shifted away from the chorale style and single electric keyboard of the prior script, and expanded to include trumpets , euphonium , tuba , timpani and other percussion , and other instruments.

Portions of the music were drawn from Hebrew folksongs , and one piece in particular from Antonio Vivaldi 's Gloria. Others were inspired by the Classical canon of composers, such as Mozart.

Some of the music was based on modal textures, such as the Phrygian dominant scale also known as Ahava Rabboh, Freygish , Hijaz maqam, or Jewish Scale which is constructed by raising the third note of the Phrygian modal scale In , Luke Ertman became the composer and developed an epic score for the Gospel of John and the Gospel of Luke —present.

This music plays much like a film score, heightening drama and enhancing the overall artistry. The body of performers is drawn from a pool of musicians and actors from across Alberta , and in some cases reaching into Saskatchewan , British Columbia , and even Ontario.

It is composed mainly of volunteer amateur actors and musicians, however also involves a few notable professionals, such as actors from Canadian Actor's Equity Association and ACTRA. Although the cast size fluctuates from year to year, the average number of performers each year is around people of all ages.

Costumers in the Wardrobe department extensively research authentic first century garb in the Middle East. It was unlawful to have a graven image for the Jewish people of that time, and so there are little to no pictorial resources which can be drawn upon in the way of statues and engravings.

Much of the wardrobe is therefore based upon text descriptions by historians , and the customs and culture of present-day Orthodox Jews.

Much is also drawn from studying the wardrobe and culture of the Bedouins , who have changed relatively little over the centuries.

Many performers have multiple roles, and therefore multiple costumers, demanding a vast archive of costume pieces. A large part of the draw of an outdoor theatrical experience is the surrounding nature.

Shows have been highlighted by sunsets, eagles, seagulls, gophers, wind, light rain, and timely cloud breaks. Even windstorms and rainstorms are known to enhance the experience of viewers.

With the introduction of the Matthew script in , the convention of a Narrator was also added. A narrator gives the story a personal perspective, allowing the audience to see what the world may have been like through the eyes of one of a disciple or traditional writer of one of the gospel accounts.

A narrator character also helps the audience follow changes in time and place. The original script used for the show was written by Kathy Covert, who also wrote a portion of the lyrics for the music.

This script was used for two years. In , Randall Wiebe wrote a new script, based primarily on the Gospel of John. New music and lyrics were written by the Society founder, Laverne Erickson.

The script was used for another 11 years, with annual edits and updates in order to keep the show fresh. Scenes were added and deleted according to playwright and director tastes. Over time a marketplace developed, taking place behind the main action, from which characters could be drawn for certain scenes.

In , partly in response to declining ticket sales, as well as a desire for a fresher production, a new script was written by Royal Sproule with excerpts taken with permission from Murray Watts' " Miracle Maker " , and music was written by Bill Hamm, both of whom are quite prominent in the Rosebud Theatre community.

The new script saw a move away from the marketplace backdrop and other crowd-oriented scenes, in favour of developing individual relationships within the story.

With such a large cast, the crowd almost functioned as its own character within the choreography of the show. This revitalized script gave an increased artistic approach to the story.

The concept was to employ theatrical techniques to make the story more powerful and engaging, while remaining true to the history of the story.

Allusions were made to Shakespeare 's Henry V , most significantly, the opening speech delivered by Matthew, which is derived largely from the Chorus' introduction.

Several surrealistic and symbolic theatre techniques were employed.

Allusions were made to Shakespeare 's Henry V , most significantly, the opening speech delivered by Matthew, which is derived largely from the Chorus' introduction.

Several surrealistic and symbolic theatre techniques were employed. The script also deepened the humanity of the characters, particularly the disciples and female followers, and explored their relationships and interactions with one another.

Rich with colour and pageantry, followers of Jesus wore blue that matched the sky above the Passion Play. Playwright and director, Royal Sproule, warned that while Matthew was an easy story to digest, John doesn't pull any punches.

With noticeably more violence and an epic new score, this version of the Passion Play was cinematic in feel and scope. The Passion Play stage is placed within a natural bowl amphitheatre in the hills of the Badlands.

The space encompasses seats, as well as a seat choir loft, although the recent addition of a musicians' platform has decreased this number slightly. The stage itself has undergone massive upgrades over the years.

It currently holds a large set building that serves both as a backstage and as a prop storage during the off-season. A large cement paddock is at the front of the building marking areas known as the " temple " and the "marketplace".

A large stone threshing floor , clay oven , and a grinding wheel lie adjacent to the building. Some aspects of the stage were used during the year run of the old script, before the change, largely as part of the marketplace backdrop.

After the script change was made and the marketplace was no longer used as such, staging no longer required some of these stage areas, and they become largely a part of the atmosphere of the play, rather than a part of the show directly.

The front of the stage is marked by a large wooden dock, representing the coast of Lake Gennesaret or the Sea of Galilee and other bodies of water.

Carved into one hill are stairs leading up to "Calvary", and at its base lie tombs which are used at various points in the production. The entire area is used in the production, including the surrounding hillside.

The Summer Theatre Project was an initiative started in to extend the Passion Play site as a summer-long cultural attraction.

The project ran for 3 years and included family shows, contemporary productions, and solo performances based on biblical stories. In , a small amphitheatre with seats was completed on the Passion Play site.

The Forum Theatre continues to be used by performers, musician, and community organizations. Several upgrades are planned for the show and the production site.

The remaining phases of the Jerusalem Wall Project the first of which was completed in , will see the renovation of the current phase, as well as an extension from the current wall to the set building allowing for transport of props, actors, and storage materials.
