Arena Stage has a long history of inclusion and playing a pioneering role in providing access services for patrons with disabilities. Arena Stage was at the forefront of the creation of audio description services for live productions in the 80s, and with the installation of GalaPro we are able to provide captioning services in any seat, at any performance. We hope that the continued evolution of our services will continue to allow every patron who visits our building to have a full and enjoyable experience.
