We can’t help but to tip our hats off to these incredible students at New Jersey’s North Bergen High School, who put together an amazing stage play adaptation of Sir Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi horror film, Alien. Yesterday, the official YouTube account for the franchise posted a neat highlights video, which you can view above, from the encore that took place last month.
If you’re interested in checking out the entire encore of the play, you can do so below. It’s available in 4K and is nearly an hour and a half long. Even Sigourney Weaver made a surprise appearance and attended this event, which attracted over 800 people.
News of this play went viral enough to catch the attention of Alien director Sir Ridley Scott, prompting him to send a letter to the cast and crew along with a generous donation to help fund the encore performance that took place on Alien Day, an event that is intentionally celebrated on April 26th as a reference to LV-426 (aka Acheron).
You might also enjoy this heartfelt video below, in which Weaver shows her support by offering some words of encouragement and plenty of hugs.
Obviously, this play is an adaptation of the 1979 sci-fi horror epic Alien, which was directed by Sir Ridley Scott. The play features all the main points from the story in addition to the characters and the alien creature that stalks the crew of the Nostromo throughout the movie. If you’re interested in seeing how much work went into this production, check out this great behind-the-scenes making-of video below.
