Parking: The free parking at the Westwood public structure (paid for by the Geffen) is a real hassle when everyone leaves at once. We pay $5.50 for a lot a block away from the theater and are home in bed by the time the last person straggles out of that slow garage line.

Quotes & Highlights

Hear Debi’s music at her website.


Debi Derryberry was born and raised in the quiet desert community of Indio, California. In high school she excelled, serving as captain of the gymnastics team and on the student council and played guitar, sang and wrote songs. Soon after graduating from UCLA as a pre-med candidate, Debi switched careers and obtained her real estate sales license, still writing and singing songs with her guitar.

Having explored two diverse career options and still writing songs and singing, yet still not creatively fulfilled, she moved to Nashville, Tennessee to explore the world of country music. After three years in Music City, she returned to Los Angeles to launch what has become a very successful voice-over career.

Debi’s most recent feature work includes the voice of Jimmy Neutron in the Paramount/Nickelodeon, Academy Award-nominated animated film, Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius,  Shelby, in the upcoming feature Legend of Secret Pass and roles in Ice Age II, and Disney’s The Wild.  Debi voiced the lead in Disney’s Whispers: An Elephant’s TaleLady and the Tramp II, Charlotte’s Web II (as Fern), and Kiki’s Delivery Service.

Some of Debi’s more prominent TV work includes “Clay,” ( the host of Playhouse Disney), the title roles in Nickelodeon’s Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius and the Cartoon Network’s Zatch Bell, Gnocchi in the PBS series Curious George , Weenie and Catrino in Nick Jr.’s Oswald the Octopus, Nergal Jr. in Cartoon Network’s Billy and Mandy, Ryo OhkiTenchi-Muyo, the Emmy-winning Life with Louie, The Addams Family and Jake on WB’s Tazmania as well as many others.
p. As an on-camera actress, Derryberry’s credits include the features Ghost World, Comic Book: the Movie, and Free Willy (yes, Debi was the stunt double who actually rode the whale). She has guest-starred on iCarly, Party of Five, Get a Life, Archie, and as “Skeeter,” the boy clown, on the children’s show Hey Vern, It’s Ernest!

Debi was a founding member of the country band Honey Pig for six years, and she wrote and produced most of the songs on their CDs, Exactly As We Are and Clueless You. Honey Pig was voted among the top 100 Los Angeles bands for three years running.  They sang at Dodgers and Lakers games and even had a song on Car Talk on NPR.

Her award-winning debut children’s CD, What A Way To Play!, was released in 2006 to tremendous acclaim, and a new children’s CD, “Very Derryberry”, was released in January 2008.
