Overview

Deep in the Canadian Badlands, a location famous for its prehistoric attractions, lies a hidden valley where the events of a not-so-distant past echo, a place where ancient Israel is reborn and you can experience, "the greatest story ever told." The 14,000 who come each July are moved to laughter and tears by the dramatic portrayal of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Loved King Harod. The play and actors were great. The benches a little hard. Do bring cushions. The setting is so wonderful and it doesn't matter where you sit because you can see great from any spot.

Since our actors are almost all volunteers they relate well to the audiences and love to chat and share about their experience acting in the play. Great bunch of people.

I would agree with you. As a arts non profit we rely on ticket sales for half our yearly budget. It would be great to have more people join us and support our efforts.
