Danny Elfman stopped by The Kevin & Bean Show this morning for a special announcement.
Los Angeles’ reigning Pumpkin King will return to the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, October 29 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, October 30 at 6:30 pm performing his role of Jack Skellington singing live to film for a very special screening of Disney’s timeless holiday classic, “TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.” Elfman will be joined by other original cast members including Catherine O’Hara (Sally), Ken Page (Oogie Boogie) and Paul Reubens (Lock).
“Being able to perform “Nightmare” live last year, in synch to the movie with a full orchestra was such a thrill,” says Elfman. “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.”
A cast of singers and special guest artists will be performing the film’s acclaimed songs live. Conductor John Mauceri, Founding Director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, will once again be leading the full orchestra and choir performing the films classic score and songs live to picture. Tim Burton-inspired costumes are encouraged.
