Danny Elfman, who wrote the film's songs (music and lyrics), composed its original score and was the original singing voice of Jack Skellington, says, "Being able to perform 'Nightmare' live last year, in synch to the movie with a full orchestra was such a thrill. But having Catherine O'Hara, Ken Page and Paul Reubens to perform with me really made it a unique and magical experience. I'm happy to bring it to our amazing Los Angeles audience one more time."
Conductor John Mauceri, Founding Director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, will lead the full orchestra and choir performing the film's classic score and songs live to picture.
Named "#1 Concert of 2015" by the Orange Country Register, HALLOWEEN AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL- TIM BURTON'S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS- IN CONCERT LIVE TO FILM will transform this legendary venue into Halloween Town with special pre-show activities including an audience participation costume contest, unique photo opportunities and trick-or-treating stations. Tim Burton-inspired costumes are encouraged.
First released in 1993, Tim Burton's THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS was directed by Henry Selick (JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH), and based on a story and characters by Tim Burton. The film follows the earnest-but-misguided adventures of Jack Skellington, Halloween Town's beloved Pumpkin King, as he attempts to take over the Christmas holiday. Against the advice of Sally, a lonely rag doll who has feelings for him, Jack enlists three mischievous trick-or-treaters – Lock, Shock, and Barrel – to help him kidnap Santa Claus. The film is rated "PG".
The concert is produced by Laura Engel & Richard Kraft, Tim Fox & Alison Ahart Williams and Andrew Hewitt & Bill Silva Presents, in association with Disney Concerts, the team that recently presented the highly-acclaimed DISNEY'S THE LITTLE MERMAID IN CONCERT AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL, starring Sara Bareilles and Rebel Wilson.
