Grammy Award-winning singer Billie Eilish has been cast in the live-to-film concert of popular Tim Burton’s acclaimed musical The Nightmare Before Christmas as the beloved character Sally.
Billboard stated that the 19-year-old singer will work alongside music director Danny Elfman, who will reprise his role as the protagonist Jack Skellington.
She will sing the “Sally’s Song” in the film concert with an orchestra which will be conducted by John Mauceri.
Weird Al Yankovic and Ken Page will be playing the role of Lock and Oogie Boogie characters.
Elfman said that it was a pleasure to inform the fans about Eilish’s casting.
“It’s my pleasure to announce that special guest star Billie Eilish will be joining the nightmare gang to sing Sally for our upcoming ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ shows at the Banc of California Stadium,” Elfman tweeted.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to have Billie joining up with the nightmare crew!” he was quoted saying in the report. “This will be a real treat (not a trick)!”
The show will be held at the Los Angeles’ Banc of California Stadium on October 29 and October 31.
The original film, released back in 1993, is the story of Jack Skellington, who comes from Halloween Town, getting enchanted by Christmas Town before his obsession gets the better of him and ends up kidnapping Santa Claus.
