Phineas and Ferb Live TourApril 19-20

Phineas and Ferb Go Live

Though Phineas and Ferb are famous for annoying their sister Candace with their grand plans, this may be their most impressive stunt yet: The brothers are going on a live tour, popping out of your television screen and landing squarely on stage in Disney’s Phineas and Ferb: The Best Live Tour Ever! As the brothers attempt to achieve an epic escape, the whole familiar cast of characters gets involved in their hijinks, including Candace, Perry the platypus (also known as Agent P in his secret double life), and evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz. The plot takes place during the magical hiatus of summer vacation—and as any child knows, that’s a time when truly anything can happen. Click for details
