Live version of 'Phineas & Ferb' visits Shea's for one day


Niagara Gazette — “To be honest, we love it because it keep our show fresh constantly,” she said. “We’re doing this show for eight months. It’s nice to be in a show that’s constantly different. It’s challenging, but at the end of the day, we’re all professionals and we love what we do.”

The whole show is very high-energy — especially for Perry the Platypus (yes, platypus), AKA Agent P., and his nemesis Dr. Doofenschmirtz, who engage in one of their trademark face-offs — and very interactive, Dalton said. Cast members throw big disco (inflatable) balls into the audience during one number, there’s an interactive pre-show during which kids can learn how to do “The Platyus Walk,” and, at the beginning of Act 2, there’s a chance for some audience members to dance with Dr. Doof up on stage.

Dalton, who would like to one day open her own dance school, said it’s priceless to see the younger participants react to being in front of an audience.

“I don’t think I’d be who I am today if I hadn’t started dancing at the age of 3,” she said. “It’s just so fun to bring them up. The music comes on and they all just start dancing around and clapping. It just makes me happy because I can see myself at 3 being the exact same way.”

The Buffalo stop for the tour will be a homecoming of sorts for Dalton. There’s not much time — the tour will be hitting the road for Hartford, Conn., that night — but her family and a number of friends from UB will be attending. Plus, the Buffalo Bills fan — who wears her CJ Spiller jersey for every game and tries to keep updated on scores even during showtimes — will have a chance to commiserate about the team’s less-than-spectacular season thus far.
