Ford's Theatre is excited to announce that we will be launching the GalaPro app, a first-of-its-kind mobile app for accessibility that allows patrons to use closed captioning in real time during live performances for our 2019-2020 mainstage season.
Patrons who use captions will be able to access them on demand through their phone with this innovative app made specifically for theatregoers.
Available beginning with the following performances for our mainstage season:
- A Christmas Carol: November 29, 2019 at 7:30 p.m.
- Silent Sky: February 2, 2020 at 2:00 p.m.
- Guys and Dolls: March 23, 2020 at 7:30 p.m.
GalaPro is flexible, and the app is expertly designed to accommodate everyone. Use the settings on your smartphone or tablet to customize your font size and color or adjust brightness. The app uses a black screen with red or gray font that is visible only to the individual looking at the screen. Airplane mode is always on, so there will be no messages, phone calls or other distractions.
GalaPro can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play on your personal device.
