After setting the Internet on fire in March with stills and trailers of their adaptation of Alien, the drama club of North Bergen High School in North Bergen, New Jersey went in for round two with an encore presentation of their play on April 26.
That’s awesome for those within the vicinity of North Bergen, and those who had the ability to get there swiftly, such as Sigourney Weaver, star of the original film, who showed up at the encore presentation and surprised the cast and crew. (She loved it, in case you were wondering!)
But what about the rest of us, who could not make it out to New Jersey for any of the three nights of the show? Well, we’re in luck: the entire play was filmed and posted online by ButtonSmasher. ButtonSmasher even included Sigourney Weaver’s surprise appearance and introduction in their recording.

I bet I’m not the only one out there wishing my high school was a little cooler! Let us know your thoughts on the play in the comments below.
