The Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 9–13 December 2017, from £5.00 - Book now

Based on a Tim Burton story and characters, Henry Selick’s brilliant animated musical The Nightmare Before Christmas sees Jack Skellington, the king of Halloween Town attempt to bring the cheer of Christmas to his realm by kidnapping Santa Claus. The film encapsulates Burton perfectly: who else would set a Christmas tale in a land dedicated to Halloween? With a dedicated fanbase, who delight in the myriad earworms and detailed stop-motion construction, it’s no surprise to see HOME schedule The Nightmare Before Christmas for both Saturday 9th and Wednesday 13th December.
