Sci-Fi Shocker “Alien” Becomes High School Play! Celebrate The Ingenuity Of North Bergen High!

“Alien” The Play!

I want to pay tribute to a group of high schoolers who staged a production of the sci-fi horror classic “Alien!”

A group of industrious high schoolers took the classic film from a movie theater and into their high school auditorium!

Here is what Deadline.com reported:

A New Jersey high school’s adaptation of the classic 1979 film Alien has gotten a stamp of approval from Hollywood insiders.

After pictures and video of the space-themed set and costumes went viral on social media, the production got the attention of the people behind the official Alien Twitter Page.

“We are impressed! 40 years and still going strong…” said the retweet of four photos from the play.

I love this! Even better, clips are showing up from the performance.

Here is a clip from the high school presentation:

Deadline goes on to report that “one of North Bergen’s art teachers designed the set, and the crew starting putting it together in September. The play debuted on March 19, with a second show performed on Friday night.”

Well, that would have been a great night of theater!

Bravo to the kids behind the production: they used their creativity, youthful enthusiasm and passion to create an exciting stage play!

We all know just how classic “alien” is – beginning with its iconic movie poster:

“In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream” is one of cinemas greatest tagline, and of course, there is a “chest busting” scene that is also a cinematic classic:

So why WOULDN’T someone turn it into a birthday cake?

It’s just one of FIVE reasons that “Alien” is one of the greatest sci-fi horror films of all, and you can see all five by clicking here:

  2. That was ambitious indeed, and they seem to have pulled it off. It must have required a substantial budget, alongside the ingenuity. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. This is great. Feel creativity should be supported. Earlier this month went to Young Players theatre performance of She Killed Monsters and they did a stellar job.
