As I just shared word about the “Scared In Jersey” happening, I figured I would also be serving our readership well by letting them know about a very interesting musical concert taking place at the Barclays Center in December. Check out the full release down below.
The Press Release:
Pumpkin King Danny Elfman is coming to Brooklyn on December 6 & 7 to perform his legendary role of Jack Skellington in a very special screening, with the music performed live by a full orchestra and choir, 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) and Ken Page (Oogie Boogie), who will all sing live during the movie.
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 in synch to the movie with a full orchestra was such a thrill at the sold out Hollywood Bowl shows. Having Catherine O’Hara and Ken Page to perform with me really made it a unique and magical experience. I’m happy to bring this special night to Brooklyn for the first time in December.”
A cast of singers and special guest artists will be performing the film’s acclaimed songs live. The concert will also include featured violin soloist, Sandy Cameron. Conductor John Mauceri, Founding Director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, will be leading the full orchestra and choir performing the film’s classic score and songs live to picture.
TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS IN CONCERT LIVE TO FILM will transform Barclays Center into Halloween Town with special pre-show activities including an audience participation costume contest and unique photo opportunities. Tim Burton-inspired costumes are encouraged.
Piercing Ken Thoughts: Though I haven’t seen this movie as many times as a number of my friends have I still love its spooky charm and hope to be able to witness one of these shows in person from a good vantage point. I can only imagine what they have in store for their attendees and yes I’ve also listed this on the Events Calendar. What do you think of this happening? Is it something that you see yourself doing?
