Last weekend I won the award for the BEST and Coolest Mom on the planet. Why, you may ask? I was able to score tickets to Phineas and Ferb: the Best Live Tour Ever which took place in Auburn Hills, MI. Like most parents with kids between the ages of 5 and 10-years of age, you are more than likely familiar with the Disney TV show. Initially, when I asked my boys if they were interested in seeing the Phineas and Ferb show my question was met with a resounding and unanimous YES! However, their excitement was nothing compared to the real excitement the day of the show as we walked into the venue. I was pleasantly surprised by the overall production and energy of the show. Disney definitely did their homework, making sure the pace was upbeat and engaging. I definitely give the creators and writers of this show kudos! They were able to keep the kids and adults easily entertained with great songs, comical moments, and overall colorful creativity. Being a parent we strive hard to be careful of how much exposure our little ones soak up, and I appreciate Disney keeping the scripts, songs, and visuals on a level that was family friendly.
The plot of the story matched the Phineas and Ferb TV show. Two Step-brothers, who are always up for a new adventure by turning their dreams into reality. Candace, their sister is always trying to thwart their plans, “Mom Phineas and Ferb are making a title sequence”, but the boys are always able to make the evidence disappear before Mom shows up. In Phineas and Ferb: the Best Live Tour, Phineas and Ferb find a way out of their world and into ours, and decide to put on the best live show ever for the audience in front of them. They end up building an idea mash-up machine to combine all the different ideas about what the show should be about!
It was so nice hearing and watching, not only my boys, but also the rest of the children in attendance, as they interacted eagerly with the colorful characters. But the highlight of the show was without a doubt Perry the Platypus! The crowd went all kinds of nuts for Perry! There was a really cool scene between Perry and the villain, Dr. Doffenschmirtz. The scene moves effortlessly from live action to having one or both characters on the video screen and back to live action. And Star Wars music to the mix, and you had one WOWED crowd! I think my favorite moment was being able to sing the theme song with my 7 year old. Last year as he was counting down to summer vacation, we sang it every day! On the last day of school, the first thing I said when I picked him up from school was singing, “It’s a hundred and four days of summer vacation and school comes along just to end it…….” All and all it was nothing short of good wholesome family entertainment and I am highly recommending the Phineas and Ferb: the Best Live Tour show to anyone who is looking for something special to do with their kids. We are big fans of Disney and this show did not disappoint.
Thank you Disney for another magical adventure! I would also like to thank Amber Louchart, owner of Metro Detroit Mommy for making this opportunity possible!
