It’s true, Seattle Pockets should be called “Spooky Pockets” during the month of October because of all the Halloween fun I have to share! For those of you who love live music and performance, “This is Halloween” is the perfect Seattle Halloween Tradition. Performed at the gorgeous venue The Triple Door in downtown Seattle, this original production by Can Can is the adaptation of “The Nightmare Before Christmas” which is one of the best Halloween movies of all time. This show, a “Live Music & Dance Multimedia Spooktacular,” plays October 20-31, 2017 with early shows for ages 17+ and late shows for ages 21+. I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing this production before but am SO excited to step into the world of Jack, Sally, and all the characters of “Christmas Town” in this “dark fantasy musical.”
About the show: Follow the misadventures of Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king and most-acclaimed citizen of Halloween Town in “This is Halloween,” Can Can’s original, dark fantasy musical adaptation of “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Weary of his usual terrifying antics and no longer seeing a point in scaring people, Jack takes a walk through the forest that will change Halloween Town – and Seattle — forever! When Jack stumbles upon Christmas Town, full of beautifully decorated trees and a warm spirit, the plot thickens. Featuring live orchestral music and vocal performance, cabaret, burlesque, all new scenic design, and video projections inspired by the original Tim Burton classic,this Halloween extravaganza is choreographed by Fae Phalen (former Seahawks Seagal and Heavenly Spies), with video design by TJ Davis (Bassnectar, Decibel Festival) – prepared to be spooked!
