Toytopia features additional signage and modifications that are in line to the MOSH’s COVID-19 policy.
“MOSH is excited to bring Northeast Florida residents of all ages and interests back to their childhoods with Toytopia,” said Bruce Fafard, Interim CEO of MOSH. “Play is the foundation from which the joy of lifelong learning grows. We welcome visitors to come and explore this unique exhibition at MOSH from October 17 through May 16, and enjoy a nostalgic trip down memory lane.”

From October 23rd through November 18th, Prime Video will be hosting The Truth Seekers Remote Adventure. This 45-minute virtual escape room game will be available to fans around the world to participate in remotely for free in collaboration with The Escape Game. The Truth Seekers Remote Adventure puts players at the center of a thrilling paranormal investigation. Players are enlisted by Elton (Samson Kayo) and Gus (Nick Frost) to help him and the rest of the Truth Seekers restore 6G signal at a museum in Weymouth and recover the artifact causing the disruption. Upon entering The Truth Seekers Remote Adventure, players will be greeted by two team members from The Escape Game: The Host and The Game Guide. The Host will be on the video call with the players and interacts with them throughout the experience, aiding in the flow of the game and giving hints when necessary.

About the Yoga Instructor
Jenn Dodgson (JD) invites you to get lost...and rediscover yourself in the process! Looking to combine her passion for natural healing with her love of adventure, she founded FERAL YOGI in 2016. She is an E-RYT 500 Hatha yoga and meditation instructor, certified in wilderness and backcountry first aid. Having practiced yoga for over 14 years, her teachings offer a fresh and engaging combination of ancient ritual, philosophy, hatha yoga, pranayama, outdoor education, and meditation. When she is not traveling or teaching, she enjoys hiking, snowboarding, reading, making herbal remedies, and chasing adventure with her husband Ryan and their badass entourage of farm animals. Whether on the mat, on the trail, or barefoot on the beach, she encourages students to reconnect to the Earth and to their true nature (or divine wild) in the process. JD’s contagious energy flows into her work, making her classes as fun as they are expansive. She maintains that "yoga isn't for the flexible, it's for the willing", so whether you're a complete novice or consider yourself a life-long yogi, your mat has found its home.

In celebration of the October 30th launch of Truth Seekers on Amazon Prime Video, fans of Nick Frost and Simon Pegg should get ready to embark on a paranormal investigation from the comfort of their homes. From October 23rd through November 18th, Prime Video will be hosting The Truth Seekers Remote Adventure. This 45-minute virtual escape room game will be available to fans around the world to participate in remotely for free in collaboration with The Escape Game. The Truth Seekers Remote Adventure puts players at the center of a thrilling paranormal investigation. Players are enlisted by Elton (Samson Kayo) and Gus (Nick Frost) to help him and the rest of the Truth Seekers restore 6G signal at a museum in Weymouth and recover the artifact causing the disruption. Upon entering The Truth Seekers Remote Adventure, players will be greeted by two team members from The Escape Game: The Host and The Game Guide. The Host will be on the video call with the players and interacts with them throughout the experience, aiding in the flow of the game and giving hints when necessary. The Game Guide is in the game on-location and will be outfitted with a camera and headlamp rigged up to a helmet. They are each team’s eyes, ears, hands, and feet, and will take commands from the players to facilitate solving challenges. Upon embarking on the game, players will enter into a museum filled with paranormal artifacts and other Easter eggs from the show. They’ll discover a hidden door in Dr. Peter Toynbee’s office leading into a heavily protected Praecepta Mortourum. Players will interact with The Truth Seekers as they journey through the museum and experience paranormal events. The game culminates in a fast-paced search for the code to escape danger after players disturb the spirits in the museum by taking the Praecepta Mortuorum off the pedestal. Each team will participate in hopes of reaching safety and officially joining the Truth Seekers team. We have time slots available for free to the public from Oct. 23 – Nov. 18 so those interested in signing up to embark on this journey can find an opening that accommodates them and their team of investigators at TruthSeekersExperience.com

The Further Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye

Location: Virtual
Time: 7:30 PM

Join us for our first production of Theatre Jacksonville’s 101st Season as we present The Further Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye. 
 
In a funny and satirical homage to the great radio plays that were a staple of entertainment through the mid-20th century, we will be streaming this show online for your listening pleasure at specific performance times.  So instead of heading into the playhouse, you can gather around your laptop, tablet, phone or other internet device and have a listen to what would have been the family radio in the living room from days gone by.
 
The Further Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye is a parody of the hard-boiled detective genre.  Just think The Maltese Falcon, but this time with a lot of laughs. The story involves stereotypical film noir situations, including mistaken identity, betrayal, a good guy detective, evil bad guys and dangerous dames.  Nothing is left uncovered as our talented voice actors spoof the conventions of those old detective radio shows, right down to the studio sound effects, the sponsors, the on-air host, the convoluted plots, and just about anything else that one might have heard on a classic serial.
 
The talented cast includes Jas Abromowitz, Cathy O’Brien, Rich Pintello, Ron Shreve, David Allen Thomas, and Curtis Williams who also serves as the director.

In a funny and satirical homage to the great radio plays that were a staple of entertainment through the mid-20th century, we will be streaming this show online for your listening pleasure at specific performance times.  So instead of heading into the playhouse, you can gather around your laptop, tablet, phone or other internet device and have a listen to what would have been the family radio in the living room from days gone by.
 
The Further Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye is a parody of the hard-boiled detective genre.  Just think The Maltese Falcon, but this time with a lot of laughs. The story involves stereotypical film noir situations, including mistaken identity, betrayal, a good guy detective, evil bad guys and dangerous dames.  Nothing is left uncovered as our talented voice actors spoof the conventions of those old detective radio shows, right down to the studio sound effects, the sponsors, the on-air host, the convoluted plots, and just about anything else that one might have heard on a classic serial.
 
The talented cast includes Jas Abromowitz, Cathy O’Brien, Rich Pintello, Ron Shreve, David Allen Thomas, and Curtis Williams who also serves as the director.

Amazon Prime Video’s Truth Seekers Remote Adventure

Location: Virtual

In celebration of the October 30th launch of Truth Seekers on Amazon Prime Video, fans of Nick Frost and Simon Pegg should get ready to embark on a paranormal investigation from the comfort of their homes. From October 23rd through November 18th, Prime Video will be hosting The Truth Seekers Remote Adventure. This 45-minute virtual escape room game will be available to fans around the world to participate in remotely for free in collaboration with The Escape Game. The Truth Seekers Remote Adventure puts players at the center of a thrilling paranormal investigation. Players are enlisted by Elton (Samson Kayo) and Gus (Nick Frost) to help him and the rest of the Truth Seekers restore 6G signal at a museum in Weymouth and recover the artifact causing the disruption. Upon entering The Truth Seekers Remote Adventure, players will be greeted by two team members from The Escape Game: The Host and The Game Guide. The Host will be on the video call with the players and interacts with them throughout the experience, aiding in the flow of the game and giving hints when necessary. The Game Guide is in the game on-location and will be outfitted with a camera and headlamp rigged up to a helmet. They are each team’s eyes, ears, hands, and feet, and will take commands from the players to facilitate solving challenges. Upon embarking on the game, players will enter into a museum filled with paranormal artifacts and other Easter eggs from the show. They’ll discover a hidden door in Dr. Peter Toynbee’s office leading into a heavily protected Praecepta Mortourum. Players will interact with The Truth Seekers as they journey through the museum and experience paranormal events. The game culminates in a fast-paced search for the code to escape danger after players disturb the spirits in the museum by taking the Praecepta Mortuorum off the pedestal. Each team will participate in hopes of reaching safety and officially joining the Truth Seekers team. We have time slots available for free to the public from Oct. 23 – Nov. 18 so those interested in signing up to embark on this journey can find an opening that accommodates them and their team of investigators at TruthSeekersExperience.com

Learn from home! Cummer Beaches presents a three-part virtual lecture series with P. Scott Brown, PhD, Professor of Art History, University of North Florida.

Degas and the Past
Free | Registration required 
A drawing by Edgar Degas in the Museum reveals a little-known artistic side of the famed French Impressionist: his interest in classical art and Greek antiquity. The drawing depicts a group of dancers—the artist’s most characteristic subject—juxtaposed with an image of the Greek Parthenon in the background. The Museum’s drawing has a companion, a painted sketch on wood of the same subject in the Dallas Museum of Art.  Together these works draw attention to Degas’s distinctive interest in classical art and archaeology and to the influence of ancient Greek art on Degas’s Impressionist dancers.
