Download the Mirvish App
Mirvish Productions is excited to announce a new addition to our Accessibility Services: the GalaPro system. This innovative technology delivers real-time closed captioning and audio description right to your own personal mobile device, via the GalaPro app, no matter where you sit in the theatre. Already currently in use in over 90% of Broadway theatres, we are thrilled to be among the first in Canada to offer this service to our audiences. Available for free for all patrons with the GalaPro app. Download on Apple and Android!

The technology is designed to adhere to and respect the rules of the theatre. Airplane mode is always on, blocking phone calls and messages, and a black screen with red or grey lettering is designed to guarantee that only the individual using GalaPro can see it from their personal screen.
