A couple of Bashaw theatre boys took the stage this past weekend at the Canadian Badlands Passion Play in Drumheller.

Coleman Miller, 19, landed a part as one of the Apostles in his first time auditioning for a role. His eight-year-old brother, Hudson, was also thrilled to be cast as a villager in the same production. Both brothers share a love for theatre fostered largely by their involvement in the Bashaw Community Theatre group.

The Miller boys travelled between Bashaw and Drumheller all spring to prepare for the highly anticipated production. It has been listed as “one of Alberta’s top cultural attractions,” by Attractions Canada, as well as “one of the top 100 events in North America,” by the American Bus Association.

The play opened to rave reviews last week, and runs again this Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It’s anticipated this season that the natural bowl amphitheatre will house more than 15,000 spectators.
