GalaPro is a solution for everyone—patrons who use access services like closed captioning or audio description and those who find the closed caption service helpful to follow the show, especially when the actors have distinct accents or speak quickly.
Venues providing accessibility services through the GalaPro app no longer have to set special performance dates for open captioned or audio described services. With GalaPro, these services are available at every single performance and patrons may sit anywhere in the venue to use access them on their own mobile device. All content is provided in real time, using speech recognition technology, developed specifically for live performances and shows. With GalaPro everyone can enjoy the show at every single performance.
How does it work? Simply download the app and choose from our participating theaters. Search by city or current location. Choose your preferred theater and view the shows offered and the variety of accessibility services.
GalaPro offers different services for each venue or production. Please check in advance that the service you are interested in is available at your upcoming show/venue.
