The stage production of “Nightmare Before Christmas the Musical” opened this past weekend at the Sangmyung Arts Center in Seoul. Complete with elaborate dance numbers, a live orchestra, and an accomplished cast of expats and Koreans, director Susan K. Morgan brought Tim Burton’s masterpiece to life in front of a more than enthusiastic audience.
While this is certainly not my first time on stage, it is my first time performing in a musical. It has been a very busy and sometimes hectic journey, but seeing all our hard work and Susan’s vision come to life on stage has been incredibly cool. I am a huge Tim Burton fan, so being a part of this has been so exciting for me. The production is full of multi-talented people with all sorts of talents and skills. With such an ambitious project, however, there is a ton of work and preparation involved. Everyone has contributed far more than just their designated roles, whether it be fundraising, prop making, costume designing, etc. It’s been a real pleasure working with them all.
For its final show dates, the musical will be held at Ferrum Hall in Seoul on Saturday December 21st at 4:30pm and 8:00pm, as well as on Sunday December 22nd at 2:00pm.
