Tim Burton: A Nightmare Before Christmas in Concert at NJPAC

https3A2F2Fcdn.evbuc_.com2Fimages2F489430902F892294875612F12Foriginal

When: Sat, December 15, 2018 at 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM

Where: New Jersey Performing Arts Center – 1 Center Street Newark, NJ 07102

Based on a story and characters created by Tim Burton, 1993’s animated The Nightmare Before Christmas (rated PG) was directed by Henry Selick (James and the Giant Peach). This magical film follows the earnest but misguided adventures of Jack Skellington, Halloween Town’s beloved Pumpkin King, as he attempts to take control of the Christmas holiday. Against the advice of Sally, a lonely rag doll who has feelings for him, Jack enlists three mischievous trick-or-treaters – Lock, Shock and Barrel – to help in his plot to kidnap Santa Claus.

The film’s score and songs are by four-time Oscar nominee Danny Elfman, one of the big screen’s most versatile composers, known for his work with top-tier directors like David O. Russell, Sam Raimi, Guillermo del Toro, Peter Jackson and others. This delightful performance of Elfman’s music will be conducted by young, multifaceted conductor Thiago Tiberio, whose classical, operatic and film music career includes work with orchestras in Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain, Turkey, South Korea and other countries.

Audience members are encouraged to wear Tim Burton-inspired costumes for this event, which will also feature an audience participation costume contest and plenty of unique photo opportunities.

Huggies & ShopRite Help New Jersey Combat Diaper Need

From July to October, ShopRite and Huggies donated 250,000 diapers to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, a member of the National Diaper Bank Network.  This helps the 1 in 3 families struggling with diaper need in New Jersey.

How you can help:

  • Donate leftover diapers – have leftover diapers your child outgrew? Your local diaper bank can use them! Opened packages are fine, too.
  • Volunteer at a lo200396155-003cal diaper bank – donate your time, skills, experience, education or man power to support (email info@diaperbanknetwork.org to find a place to volunteer near you)
  • Host a diaper drive – every package of diapers you collect and every dollar you raise will impact needy infants and toddlers

The initiative is part of a larger donation of 500,000 diapers and $10,000 to the National Diaper Bank Network to help tackle diaper need—the struggle to provide enough clean diapers to keep a baby or toddler clean, dry, and healthy.*
