  • Despite getting rained out right near the end, watching this performance was an absolutely amazing experience. The script was incredibly thought-provoking and the original music scores were done with a live orchestra. With over a hundred actors in a beautiful outdoor setting, the life of Christ came alive in an entirely new way to me! You might want to bring a poncho because the Alberta summer weather is always unpredictable. :) The rustic wood benches had backs to lean on and I was comfortable, though some may want to bring a pillow to sit on.
