Updated: High School High Puts on Alien The Play!

If you follow us on social media, last week you may have seen a picture from the opening night of a high school play based on Alien! Since u/Emo_Kid23 made Reddit aware of the production, Alien The Play has gone viral, garnering attention from the likes of Adam Savage and Emo_Kid (aka Justin Pierson) has even been interviewed for local news!

The play, which is based on the 1979 horror film “Alien,” debuted on March 19 at the high school and students performed a second show Friday night. According to senior Justin Pierson, who worked on the sound crew for the play, the set was made largely of recycled materials.

“This is going to sound really funny but (the set crew used) garbage essentially. Just anything that was lying around like cardboard and metal,” he said.

Pierson added that his fellow students who participated on stage and behind the scenes were “an extremely hard working group.”

    Sigourney Weaver is so awesome. This makes me want one final appearance from her as Ripley ever more than I already did. I don’t care if it’s Blomkamp’s Alien or a continuation of Resurrection.

    Ah I remember in JUNIOR School us kids ages 7-11 so wanted to do an ALIEN themed Theatre play or at least prop show.

    Props to that High School for having a sense of humour, not crying "ah it's an 18/R rated movie, what are these kids doing?" and being a crowd pleaser for all generations.

    More live Theatrical ALIEN shows, whether Community or West End art centre please!
