Phineas and Ferb Live is coming to Wells Fargo Arena Oct. 22 and we are lucky enough that this year, there is a native Iowan in the show. Diana Reed is originally from Norwalk and was Miss Iowa in 2007 before finishing in the top 10 of the Miss American pageant and winning the talent competition. She is a University of Iowa grad and was the Golden Girl baton twirler in her time there. Since then she has been all over the country working on Broadway, Disney World and Universal Studios to name a few.
Yesterday I was lucky enough to meet Diana as she spoke to a choir class at Norwalk High School about a career in the performing arts. Below you’ll find some snippets from her talk, as she taught the students Gitchi Gitchi Goo, talked about a day on tour, as well as her upcoming role in the show.
She really was great, and if you haven’t bought tickets yet, you need to come and cheer for our local girl!
