Last week, I took Miss Boo & Miss Cakes to Phineas & Ferb LIVE at the Independence Events Center. I knew the girls would love it, but I wasn’t so sure about my mom (who went with us) or myself. However, both my mom & I were pleasantly surprised because the show was awesome!
Miss Cakes said it was the “best show EVER!”
The show itself lasted about 90 minutes:
- 30 minute first half
- 15 minute intermission
- 45 minute second half
During that time, Phineas & Ferb were determined to make Summer last forever. Meanwhile, every character had their “spotlight” moment where they got to choose what they wanted to do. This included Candace getting to create the best pair of pants – however her pants were attacked by squirrels which brought on the popular Phineas & Ferb song: SIMP > Squirrels In My Pants.
There were fun props, such as this huge Monster Truck that rolled onto the stage:
That was followed by marshmallow bumper cars & the characters performing with marshmallow shoes.
The backdrop to the whole performance was a large screen that changed throughout the show & added an interactive touch to the character action on stage. A huge elephant moved across the screen at one point & the bottom of his trunk stuck out from the bottom of the screen. Sitting on the bottom of the trunk was Phineas’ & Ferb’s friend Baljeet. Baljeet hopped down from the trunk and an Indian dance number was performed (my favorite of the show).
Later some disco dancers came out and disco balls went from appearing on the large backdrop screen to being thrown out to the audience for us to bounce around. I was truly amazed at the timing of the on stage actions with what was going on in the backdrop screen, plus the accompanying audio. Perry & Dr. Doofenshmirtz had a half on-screen, half on-stage fight. (Which included one of them being on the screen & the other on the stage at certain points.) Perry even did a back handspring on stage!
The show was packed with musical & dance numbers and the kids were encouraged to dance in their seats. I found myself wanting to get up & dance. My mom said it was the best kids show she’s ever been to. Overall, Phineas & Ferb LIVE was a fabulous show and if you have the chance to go, I highly recommend it!
