Halsey has joined the three-night live stage production of Tim Burton’s 1993 animated film The Nightmare Before Christmas at the famed Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California, taking place Oct. 27-29 in honor of the movie’s 30th anniversary. The Nightmare Before Christmas was previously presented at Hollywood Bowl in 2015, 2016 and 2018.
Halsey will portray the character Sally for the first two nights of the event; and the film’s original voice actor, Catherine O’Hara, will then take over the role for the third night. O’Hara will also play Shock during that performance (who will be portrayed by Riki Lindhome for the previous two nights). Danny Elfman, who wrote the music for the original film, will voice Jack Skellington on all three nights; and other cast members include Fred Armisen as Lock and Ken Page as Oogie Boogie. John Maurcei will conduct the full orchestra and choir.
