The concert will feature live digital animation with pre-show activities like a costume contest and on-site trick-or-treating, according to producers AWP Worldwide as well as Richard Kraft and Laura Engel. There could also be surprises in store as previous concerts brought out Catherine O’Hara as Sally, Ken Page as Oogie Boogie, and Paul Reubens as Lock.
