A Noise Within is delighted to be the first regional theater in Southern California to offer access to closed captioning at select performances using GalaPro.

The GalaPro app (available on iOS and Android devices) provides closed captions for patrons to view on their own mobile devices. GalaPro operates on a closed internal network via “airplane mode,” preventing sounds, texts and emails from disturbing other patrons during use.

The service was rolled out at A Noise Within during closing weekend of the company’s most recent production, King Hedley II. Audience member Virlyn Grant, who lives with hearing loss, was able to give it try. 

GalaPro is available at A Noise Within thanks to funding from the Perenchio Foundation. Audiences will be able to experience GalaPro during performances of Misalliance on Saturday, June 8 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, June 9 at 2 p.m.

Vroman's presents: A lyrical and charming picture book about making the most of your one precious life, from Grammy Award-winning co-founder of Pentatonix Scott Hoying & Mark Hoying.

Vroman's presents Scott and Mark Hoying Banner flyer

Born into a world of endless skies, natural wonders, and friends waiting to be found-a mayfly, with only a single day to live, flies high into the beauty of it all. But when he sees all the other mayflies pairing off, he wonders if he will have to spend his day alone. Could it be that he just needs to fly a little higher to meet his match?

With lush illustrations and rhythmic storytelling, How Lucky Am I? encourages us all to appreciate the beauty of everyday life and those we share it with. The book includes a QR code to link readers to the original "How Lucky Am I?" song, written by the authors and performed by Scott Hoying. (Henry Holt & Company)

This is a ticketed event. Tickets include seating for two (one parent and one child) and one hardcover copy of How Lucky Am I to be handed out at check in.  An original song performance, book signing, and photo opportunity, will follow the conversation. For information click here.
