Welcome to the 2014 Canadian Badlands Passion Play. Since first
presenting the idea of a Passion Play as a tourism initiative to
community of Drumheller in 1988, I have watched with gratitude as the
telling of the story of Jesus has been embraced, turned into a reality and
continues to grow today. The name “Canadian Badlands” seems to be
an auspicious title for this Passion Play. But it has laid the groundwork
for the branding of the Canadian Badlands as one of Canada’s largest
tourism initiatives.
This should come as no surprise since Jesus influence has inspired all
aspects of our culture. However, some of the most enduring influences
have been in the area of the arts with the creation of great paintings, sculptures, music, and literature…
Today you are sitting in an amphitheatre watching a theatrical performance inspired by Jesus.
Theatre patrons know that the best way to enjoy a theatrical experience is to suspend their disbelief
and enter into the story being presented. The outside world can wait: now is the time to be transported
into another time and place. What you are about to experience is transformative. See through us,
look beyond us, let your imagination soar and let your heart race.
—LaVerne Erickson, Founder
Are all the actors volunteers?
Join the Cast
Combine a fun summer vacation with a fantastic group of friends and an amazing experience
performing in a theatrical event unlike any
other while sharing the incredible story that
changed the course of history. Regardless of
past experience, from veteran actor to those
who have never been on stage, we want you to
be involved.
Of the 200 actors on stage only a few are
professionals. The rest are people such as
yourself who join up each year to rehearse and
perform the Passion Play. Our volunteer actors
travel many thousands of kilometers to attend
10 weekend rehearsals. Some drive more than
12 hours each weekend.
Sponsor a Performer
While participating in the Passion Play, volunteers can stay in our beautiful riverside campground at no cost. It is a sanctuary of rest and
a hub of social activity. Refresh your spirit and
renew your soul with a Sunday morning worship service.
The Passion Play is an incredible experience for
all ages. Come and participate by yourself or
bring your whole family.

This 20 track CD contains all the main compositions from the show and
features the voices of the cast. The musical backdrop of this story comes
from the sounds and instruments of the Middle East, Africa and China. The
melodies were inspired by traditional songs such as “Gabriel’s Oboe,” and
“Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring”.
Photo Book
Our Commemorative 100 performance photo book is available in
the Gift Shop and the Welcome Booth ($40 plus gst). The hardcover
book is 9 X 12 inches and features over 100 full size photographs
that lead you through the gospel story as seen through the eyes
of Matthew the tax collector. 10 pages of historical photographs
illustrate the past 20 years of the society. This book is a pictorial
representation of “The Greatest Story Ever Told” and makes a great
gift for those who were not able to see the Passion Play this year.
Documentary DVD
Filmmaker Philip Spink has produced a three part award winning documentary mini-series on the making of the Canadian Badlands Passion
Play. The film follows the artists, craftsmen and the production staff as
they craft the production. Philip says “It’s fascinating watching these professionals and volunteers work together to overcome significant obstacles
and craft the show”. The documentary aims to capture the tapestry of this
world-class event - from an artistic, cultural, and spiritual point of view.

Our Story
The Canadian Badlands
Passion Play is an unique
theatrical and spiritual
combining a stunning
natural location with
an engaging portrayal
of Christ’s life to tell the “greatest story ever
told.” It is the world’s only Passion Play which
intentionally breathes new life annually with
a new script, cast, and set­­
—all purposefully
designed so that each audience member might
encounter Jesus within the cultural, geographical
and historical setting of his life.
Deep in the Canadian Badlands­
—a location
famous for its pre-historic attractions—lies a
hidden valley where the events of a not-sodistant past echo, a place where ancient Israel is
reborn and a dramatic portrayal of the life, death,
and resurrection of Jesus Christ is performed.
Produced each summer by a nonprofit society
and hundreds of volunteers, the Canadian
Badlands Passion Play is the product of
determined storytellers. The production is the
result of countless hours offered by dedicated
artists, and the support of a community which
came together to nurture and care for it.
In the beginning, the community of Drumheller
and surrounding area rallied to see through
the endeavor. Countless hours were invested
to transform the valley into an amphitheatre
capable of holding thousands of people. The
premiere season drew thousands of spectators
and every show sold out. Plans were made
to increase the seating capacity of the natural
Around the world, a good story always draws
a crowd, and this is the greatest story ever told.
Word of the unique setting and a passionate
troupe of dedicated storytellers and musicians
has spread out from the Badlands like a prairie
wildfire, attracting people from towns near
by and countries far away. People come away
declaring both the setting and performance to
be heart-grabbing, regardless of faith or religious
affiliation. For believers, it is often part of an
annual pilgrimage tradition.
As the audiences grew, so too did the facilities
that welcomed them and drew them into an
ancient world: a massive wall reminiscent of
the gates around Jerusalem eventually sealed off
the valley and formed a gateway between two
worlds; Bedouin tents sprang up; a tomb was
carved into the set; and the backstage area was
developed to hold a growing cast of actors and
animals. The stage was developed to meet the
growing needs of a flourishing script. With more
room to work, new scenes could be added and
new stories became ripe for exploration.
Behind every great production, and at the root
of the tree of creativity and opportunity, lies
inspiration. That inspiration drew amateurs
and professionals from around the country,
prompted choirs to begin dedicated rehearsals
to the music, created a summer school for teen
actors and mobilized a large volunteer force
ready to host the annual event.
Like the tree that thrusts its gnarled roots into
the rocky edge of this valley, the Canadian
Badlands Passion Play is an unlikely miracle.
It has been named one of North America’s Top
100 Events, as well as Alberta’s Top Cultural
Attraction, won the Alto Award for “Alberta
Pride” and has become a highlight of Western
Canadian cultural tourism. In 2014, the event
has been expanded to offer a third weekend for
the first time, as it will continue to do to meet the
need of a loyal and loving audience.

Directors’ Note
The heart of dramatic action in the story of the Fourth Gospel is an exhortation to believe. The appeal
is uttered by Jesus on nearly every occasion he speaks. Jesus does not discriminate—government officials and blind beggars, religious leaders and common peasants, disciples and teachers and tradesmen
and common-law housewives all come face to face with this single-word command. It is an interesting
incitement that still resounds into our amphitheatre from across the millennia. Why would Jesus be
willing to die for this message? Why would he also knowingly ask others to suffer for the same message?
To believe is to reject cynicism for optimism. Belief furthers empirical evidence with deeper ways of
“knowing.” Belief requires acceptance and relinquishing of control. It alters our very decisions and
transforms our life choices. “This area of your being”—Jesus seems to be saying—“is the key to who
you really are. You must examine, rather than simply accept what you believe.” His words are direct and
his actions are theatrical. They stir the crowds and cultural leaders of his time (and ours), leaving them
with questions and choices to ponder.
Belief is a high-risk proposition in a world filled with war, greed, suffering, corruption, and every kind
of human depravity. Few today seem to have the stomach for the necessary vulnerability belief demands. Similarly, the writer of the Fourth Gospel gives us many examples of unbelief from his experience, including a lame man healed by Jesus himself. However, the Fourth Gospel account also persists
in promulgating a message of belief. It paints a picture of Jesus that glistens, flows, and nurtures. Light.
Living Water. The Bread of Life. The Good Shepherd. These poetic and literary images spark the imagination and draw the reader toward hope.
And what of the Fourth Gospel’s claims that belief reaps benefits: Can belief make us children of God?
Can belief cause us to grasp infinity in the present moment? If seeing is believing, than perhaps this
visual presentation will initiate your own ruminations on the subject.
The Canadian Badlands Passion Play is an environment of belief. Each year hundreds of volunteers and
professionals endeavour to re-enact an epic story on an epic scale. There are always obstacles. The process requires infinite acts of charity and community from people who
go unrecognized. The undertaking can be daunting and the weather
can be uncooperative. I have learned through the process that belief
is, at its core, hope enacted. I am convinced that the optimism of belief
is an essential part of bringing this production together each summer.
And, in the spirit of Jesus’ own invitation to his fledgling disciples, I
hope you get to personally experience this hope during the performance: “See for yourself. Come.”
Enjoy the show.

Annual Fund
The Canadian Badlands Passion Play is a world-class
presentation that fills a critical need in our country
and in our world. We are constantly working to make
sure that we present “The greatest story ever told” to
the best of our ability. During the past five years we
have developed a new script, added a sound system,
constructed the forum, made significant changes to
the set and have purchased the ski hill property. We
also acquired a riverside campground for our volunteer
actors and have added power and washroom facilities.
Additional staff have been hired to work year-round
so that proper preparations can be made for the spring
when our 40 contract staff arrive to work through the 3
month performance season.
A production of this size and quality requires resources
beyond what we can raise through ticket sales alone.
Fifty percent of the yearly budget comes from sales
(tickets, gift shop and concession) and the remainder
comes through grants and donations.
Funding Sources
If you would like to support ongoing development of
the Canadian Badlands Passion Play through a donation
please use the envelope in
the centre of this program
and either drop it the
donation buckets on the
way out or mail it in a later
date. You can also call our
office any time if you wish
to donate over the phone.
Thank you for your support.

A Sky Blue Robe
To the contemplative traveler, the expanse of
Alberta’s treeless prairie offers uninhibited
views of stunning blue summer skies. For the
directors and designers of the Passion Play, the
vast blue sky hanging over the kilometer wide
set produced another kind of inspiration. Directors Barrett
Hileman and Royal
Sproule tell us that
the Gospel of John
says of Jesus that
“The Word became
a human being,
and lived among
us.” For Hileman
although the statement is simple, the
expression is incredibly profound. Jesus emerges in the poetic
Fourth Gospel not as a collection of words,
but as the Word; not as a composite of facts,
but as Truth. The Fourth Gospel writer offers
a Jesus that is bigger than man—He is the very
elements that give mankind existence: Living
Water, Bread, Blood and Light. The idea of Jesus as “Light” began to resonate
with the directors as a fitting representation of
Jesus in a Gospel filled with imagery, but what,
if anything, could visually represent the Light
coming to earth in a theatre space with no controlled lighting? The production team needed a
visual metaphor to tell the story of John’s Jesus.
directly from the earth and green grasses. The
erudite Teachers of the Law would be connected
to the blacks and browns of stone buildings and
urban industry. Roman warriors, well-versed in
bloodshed, would wear their historic red. And
for the title character, the team needed only
to look up. In the broad expanse surrounding
the Passion Play, sky blue emerged as the most
alive and vibrant colour to represent the light of
Christ. The vast sky supplied a colour unique
to anything else on set and clothing Jesus in
it makes him visible from anywhere on stage.
From Jesus’ first entry into the world of the play
until His final ascent, associating Jesus with the
sky is a monochromatic reminder of Jesus’ claim
that his home resides elsewhere. The directors have woven that blue thread throughout
the script and when the light of Jesus touches
lives, the blue permeates individual characters
or filters through the crowd symbolizing Jesus’
impact on the world around Him.
Drawing inspiration from the natural landscape
around them, specific colour palettes began to
emerge in association with different groups of
the play’s characters. The villagers would be
clothed in the colours of the hills, as if sprung

An Actor’s Story
I was in a play at Rosebud School of the Arts in the 1980’s
when I decided to quit the theatre because I knew in my
heart I was just onstage just to feed my ego. The next nine
years were an extremely rocky road for my family and I. It
wasn’t until I finally hit rock bottom that, by God’s grace,
I reached out for help.
During those 9 years I had avoided the stage and
pretended I did not have to feed my ego but that’s exactly
what I was doing through my addictions. Then one day I
got a call from a friend of mine, Royal Sproule, who had
taken on the position as the director of the Passion Play.
He said, “ I need you to come and play Pilate for me, and
I know I don’t need to audition you, because I’ve seen you
in the morning!” As I thought about the offer I realized
that God had not only delivered me from my addictions
but had also set me free to pursue my love of acting. I
knew that the Passion Play was a story where I could
glorify God with the gifts He had given me. God had set
my feet on a straight path and had also given me back my love of the stage.
As I play the role of Pilate I have learned that we all have false images of God in our hearts and
minds. It seems that every performance season another one of those false images gets smashed to
pieces. Watching it, acting in it—it doesn’t matter—a scene will happen and it will give me a new
glimpse into the Father’s heart, and it will wake me up—many times it will make me weep, and it
always brings me closer to Christ. Every time I act in the Passion Play it feel’s like I am meeting Him
for the very first time, and the moment that you thought you knew Him before is dim in the wake
of his new smile, or hug, or compassion for that day.

The Animals’ Story
Animals have always been an important part of
creating the reality of the world of the Passion Play,
but their role has not always been a success. One
year we tried a group of goats but they ate everything
in sight. Another time a rooster was brought in for
Peter’s denial but he could never crow on cue. Then
there were the local critters that decided to join the
cast without an audition. Once when Jesus called for
Lazarus to come forth from the tomb, a gopher decided that was the best time to come out of the
entry. It took quite a while to get the crowd (and actors) to stop laughing. At another performance
one of the released doves decided to land on a Temple Guard’s helmet. The guard took a while to
realize he would have to move from attention to shoo it away.
In today’s performance we will include birds (that return for each performance), a few sheep, two
horses and a donkey. Jody and Marlies Ohlhauser are our animal wranglers and are also part of the
the cast so that they can coach the animals and take care of them throughout the rehearsals and
the performances. Marlies tells us that Zeke the donkey
looks forward to going on stage for the triumphal entry
scene but he is even more excited to get offstage and get
his tasty reward for a job well done. Our horses, Zarbo
and Diesel, know their roles so well that if the directors
change their placement they try to go back to their
original place. When we switch from an afternoon to
an evening performance they get impatient waiting for
the show to start. And just like our human actors they
respond to the appreciation they receive at the curtain
call. Our animal actors are an important part of our story.
The Man Born Blind
Creating a three hour play from a gospel with almost 16,000 words was a
challenging task. The aim was to remain true to the text while fitting as much
of John’s writings into the performance as possible. In his final words to his
disciples Jesus said, “They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time
is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to
God” (John 16:2). The cost of being a disciple of Christ has always been great
and many have suffered terribly from that time until now.
Being thrown out of a synagogue was much more than forbidding one’s
attendance at the local church. The act was one of emotional, spiritual,
relational, and economic violence, as it was a cutting off of all ties to a person’s community.
The severity of being a social and religious outcast can
be difficult for a contemporary audience to culturally
comprehend. The beating of the man born blind visually
represents the violence that Jesus said may result from the
choice to “follow me.” The first half of the play closes with
the words “though God made the world though him, the
world did not recognize him.” Being a disciple of Jesus is a
commitment of a person’s entire life, and indeed, for many
over the last 2000 years, it has cost them their very lives.
