If you've ever been to a high school play, you know what the experience is like. These are not big budget productions, and they are not really supposed to be. Some of your students, some of whom probably play for the first time in their lives, do their best to stay true to a popular theatrical production, and that's usually very entertaining.
Most high school productions are relatively safe, but high school in North Bergen, New Jersey, has been cautious in trying to adapt the 1979 science fiction classic. Extraterrestrial for the stage. Taking a Hollywood movie and turning it into a play is a daunting challenge, but saying that the students did it would be a huge understatement.
Short clips and photos of the play spread like wildfire on Twitter and elsewhere, and with good reason. As you can see, the quality of the production is absolutely exceptional.
You have all the main characters dressed in costumes that follow the film very closely, and many of the most iconic props of the film to give the whole place a really strange atmosphere. One of the most incredible additions is the imposing "Space Jockey", which links the original Extraterrestrial film in the tradition of Prometheus and the other prequels.
The whole series is so incredibly cool, and there are so many people talking on Twitter that the official report of the Extraterrestrial The franchise even took a little time to congratulate her.
As impressive as it may be, it is important to note that this is a totally unlicensed use of the software. Extraterrestrial property. Because of this, it's unlikely that a video of the play – which may or may not be being edited for eventual release, chatting on Twitter – will last a long time on video-sharing sites like Youtube.
The Internet obviously wants more, but unfortunately for us the Extraterrestrial The franchise is currently owned by Disney, and Disney is not exactly renowned for its leniency with respect to copyright. Anyway, the students have done a perfect job and it's great to see a classic science fiction work continue to flourish.
