Preparing to Come
What to Bring
The Passion Play is a three hour outdoor event. Concessions, a Gift Shop, modern washrooms and free parking are all available on site. We suggest you prepare for hot, cold, wet and dry conditions: bring a low, brimmed hat, cushion/blanket, warm jacket, lotion, sunglasses, water, insect repellent, opera glasses or binoculars, and rainwear with a hood. Umbrellas and strollers are not permitted.
Parking Lots for cars and buses are staffed by attendants. Golf cart shuttle service is available for those needing assistance from the parking lots to the Amphitheatre. Please arrive at least one hour ahead of performance time.
Tickets bear your seat number. All connecting paths are shale or gravel. Wooden bench seating with backs, ample leg room and seat spacing with clear sight lines, make every seat a good seat. You may bring your own cushion for comfort, or a limited number are available for rent in the Gift Shop. The badlands setting creates one of Canada’s largest acting areas. Because of this, each guest will be closer to some scenes than to others. The amphitheatre has superb acoustics, but actors voices are also amplified to ensure ease of hearing for all guests.
Concession & Picnic Area
A variety of refreshments and small meals are available for sale (and made available in the amphitheatre during the intermission of each Passion Play performance). Enjoy concession items or bring your own picnic in a grassy area just north of the Jerusalem Wall.
The Gift Shop offers a variety of souvenirs, clothing, decorations and other items related to the theme of the Passion Play.
In addition to bottled water for sale in the concession, outdoor taps to fill bottles, water fountains, and modern full-service washrooms are available to our patrons.
Ask parkers and ushers for assistance and make sure you let us know if you are in a wheelchair.
Hikes / Walks / Biking
We welcome visitors to enjoy the Canadian Badlands while on site. Please avoid going in the hills during a performance day. Otherwise, you are welcome to explore.
