Elfman – who composed the original film music, lyrics, and score – will sing the songs of “Jack” accompanied by a live orchestra, while stunning visual projections on the façade of the Hollywood Bowl transport the audience into Halloween Town! The immersive experience will feature additional special guests yet to be announced!

Conductor John Mauceri, founding Director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, will once again be leading the full orchestra and choir performing the film’s classic score and cherished songs live to picture along with the all-star cast and special guest artists performing the film’s acclaimed songs live.
“It’s impossible to believe it has been thirty years since Tim Burton made our strange little musical,” Said Danny Elfman. “What a tremendous thrill it is to perform it live in concert again at the iconic Hollywood Bowl.”
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 of Kraft-Engel Management and Alison Ahart Williams, Tim Fox & Georgina Ryder of AMP Worldwide in association with Disney Concerts.
