High School Kids Stage Alien: The Play and You Can Now Watch It Online

Sev­er­al weeks back, Col­in Mar­shall told you about an enter­pris­ing group of high school stu­dents in North Bergen, New Jer­sey who staged a dra­mat­ic pro­duc­tion of Rid­ley Scot­t’s 1979 film Alien. And they did it on the cheap, cre­at­ing cos­tumes and props with donat­ed and recy­cled mate­ri­als. The pro­duc­tion was praised by Rid­ley Scott and Sigour­ney Weaver alike. Now, above, you can watch a com­plete encore per­for­mance made pos­si­ble by a $5,000 dona­tion by Scott, and attend­ed by Weaver her­self. Have fun.
