Apparently high schools are tired of boring, predictable plays with salesman deaths and songs about a somewhere over the rainbow. That’s no fun! If you’re going to do drama bring the DRAMA! This is the lesson being taught by New Jersey’s North Bergen High School Drama Club because they decided to celebrate Halloween early this year by performing a staged version of the classic sci-fi horror film Alien.
Allow my inner geek to come out and scream at the top of his bespectacled lungs because this would have caused me to pay attention in high school. Geometry and history? Later for that shit. Give me Ripley and facehuggers please! Uproxx reports that North Bergen’s Drama Club wanted to be the champions of high school plays for the rest of time by utilizing their resources and putting together a production of a film that still gives many people nightmares to this day. And when I tell you that their production looks a million times better than most Hollywood blockbusters, I’m not even lying. The amount of care they put into their show makes all of the Fast and Furious movies look like bootleg copies of Outrun on Nintendo.

That’s not even the best part. They didn’t spend that much to make their show look so awesome. Everything they used was made out of recycled material, which basically means each member of North Bergen’s Drama Club will be working in Hollywood after gradation because all they ever use out there is recycled material and call them reboots. But you’re probably thinking, “That facehugger scene was trash! It was just a sock on a string“. Fine hater, then how do you explain this epic ass Xenomorph???
I love that north bergen high school did alien last night as their school play, so I’m gonna keep tweeting about how great it is..everything was made from recycled materials .. so nuts amazing I’m so proud of my hometown pic.twitter.com/EEMEbankDz

The North Bergen Drama Club is officially the Beyonce’ of ALL drama clubs, so bow down bitches! And when some jerk on Broadway steals their idea and produces this show for the 2020-2021 season, they better either cut all those kids a check for giving them this Tony-winning idea.
