“What’s this? What’s this? No, it’s not a dream…The Nightmare Before Christmas is returning to Chicago! Get in the Halloween spirit with a screening of Tim Burton’s classic stop-motion film, featuring beloved songs like “This Is Halloween!” and “Jack’s Lament” performed live-to-film by the Chicago Philharmonic, who “truly [bring] to life the spooky magic of Danny Elfman’s legendary music” (Chicago Stage Standard). This new Chicago tradition has everything you need to celebrate Halloween with your family or your friends: Dress in your Halloween or Nightmare finest and come early for trick-or-treating, fun activities, and a costume contest in the Auditorium Theatre’s historic…and perhaps even haunted…lobby.
