Justin Eddy and the Great Cosmic Crisis invites families into a digital, theatrical, and augmented reality experience. On the move throughout the performance, families work together to aid the space cadets in their mission to save their captured friends!
Justin Eddy and the Great Cosmic Crisis asks audience members to participate in a scavenger hunt to locate five puzzle boxes around Earlscourt Park, Toronto. After completing each puzzle, they are given an image to scan with their mobile device. These images unlock a new scene for the audience to engage with. This immersive, augmented reality experience uses a digital overlay that merges pre-recorded actors with the real life park environment surrounding the audience members.
