Aside from the pop star playing Sally, the production will also see "Weird Al" Yankovic as Lock, while Elfman and Ken Page reprise their role as Jack Skellington and Oogie Boogie, respectively. The cast is set to sing live, accompanied by a full orchestra led by conductor John Mauceri, during a screening of the iconic 1993 film.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to have Billie joining up with the nightmare crew,” Elfman said in a statement. “This will be a real treat (not a trick).”
The Nightmare Before Christmas shows will be held at Los Angeles' Banc of California Stadium on Halloween weekend. The October 29 concert starts at 8pm PST, with a more family friendly start time of 6:30pm PST on October 31. Trick-or-treating stations and costume contests are planned for both nights.
The live-to-film event has been an LA Halloween tradition for years before going on a three-year hiatus in 2018. It was supposed to resume last year but was canceled due to COVID. Tickets to both shows are available here.
Eilish performed at this year's iHeartRadio Music Festival. If you missed any of the action, you can relive the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Festival by tuning in to The CW Network on Saturday, October 2 and Sunday, October 3 from 8-10 pm ET/PT for a two-night television special.
