Phoebe Bridgers is set to voice Sally in ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas Live’ for two UK shows this December, joining Danny Elfman’s Jack Skellington.
Announced via social media last night, the seasonal film will be shown on the big screen alongside a live orchestra at London’s OVO Arena Wembley on Friday 9th & Saturday 10th December.
Danny Elfman composed the music and lyrics for the 1993 Tim Burton-directed film, and will reprise his role of Jack Skellington. Phoebe Bridgers will join as Sally, who was originally voiced by Catherine Anne O’Hara. Ken Page will return as Oogie Boogie, with the BBC Concert Orchestra providing a soundtrack under the direction of John Mauceri.
Tickets for the two shows are available here. You can watch a teaser for the shows below:
