Phineas and Ferb
By Arrissia Owen Turner
Sat, Jan. 14-Sun, Jan. 15
What kid wouldn’t want a rollercoaster or a ski resort in his or her backyard? Or maybe you’re more into creating tree house robots for battle? It’s all perfectly normal summer vacation fodder if you’re stepbrothers Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher, the driving forces behind the plotlines of Disney Channel’s wildly successful animated TV show Phineas and Ferb. This is all exciting enough for diehard fans, but to add to the exhilaration Phineas and Ferb are taking the stage for Phineas and Ferb: The Best LIVE Tour Ever! The frolic and fun stops by Ontario’s Citizen Business Bank Arena on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 14 and 15, for five shows. Taking the show to the stage are veteran children’s TV writer Bradley Zweig (Sid the Science Kid) and director/choreographer Fred Tallaksen (Madonna, Modern Family, Wizards of Waverly Place). Phineas and Ferb, along with their buddies Isabella, Baljeet and Buford are up to their usual shenanigans, and Candace, their big sis/aspiring tattler, will do her best to put the kibosh on their plans, natch. But, hey—where’s Perry? The brothers’ clandestine pet platypus that doubles as a secret agent will no doubt thwart the plans of his nemesis, Danville Tri-State area’s most lovable evil genius, Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz. There’s sure to be the evilest-inator yet.
