Three original stars from the cult-favorite Halloween and/or Christmas film The Nightmare Before Christmas—including composer Danny Elfman—will take part in upcoming 25th anniversary concert screenings at the Hollywood Bowl.
The Los Angeles venue will present live-to-picture performances of the Tim Burton movie October 26 and 27. Elfman, who voiced the role of Jack Skellington, will lead a cast featuring fellow co-stars Catherine O'Hara as Sally, theatre veteran Ken Page as Oogie Boogie, and more guest artists to be announced.
Hollywood Bowl Orchestra Founding Director John Mauceri will conduct the event, produced in association with Disney Concerts.
"We’re so thrilled to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the film with an extraordinary concert experience mixing film, live music, singers, and fully immersive digital projections that can only be experienced live," said producers Richard Kraft and Laura Engel in a statement.
The Nightmare Before Christmas is the latest in live-to-film offerings from the Hollywood Bowl, following all-star presentations of Disney's The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, as well as Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
An American Express pre-sale will launch September 5 before tickets are released to the public September 8.
