Both Ridley Scott and Sigourney Weaver Praise New Jersey High Schoolers for Viral ‘Alien’ Play
Over the weekend, New Jersey’s North Bergen High School went viral for its insanely impressive stage play inspired by Ridley Scott‘s Alien, a low-budget production with incredible sets, costumes and yes, even a Xenomorph. The play went so far and wide that it caught the attention of both Ridley Scott and Sigourney Weaver, who offer praise this week.
In a video tweeted out by the official Alien account, Weaver gushed about the production: “I saw a bit of your production of Alien, and it looked incredible. You put so much heart and soul into that. I just wanted to send our compliments. Not only from me but from James Cameron and the original screenwriter, Walter Hill. We all want to say bravo. Well done.”
Meanwhile, Ridley Scott sent a letter directly to the high school’s drama club, shared by Deadline. He wrote, “Thanks for doing Alien. I felt very complimented.” Additionally, Scott even proposed, “Scott Free will advance some financial help to fund an encore performance of Alien.”
