  • First time ever!! Wonderful experience. Unfortunately got rained out in the middle of it. Nonetheless great overall experience with the family. Great story, production and actors!! Pictures were taken before the show as photography, there after, was not allowed.
  • 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.
