A bit off topic, but this one was too good to resist. Fans of the movie Rushmore likely remember one of the movie’s best gags, high school student Max Fischer’s stage play recreation of the movie Serpico. Funny, but a North Bergen, New Jersey high school has done one better and translated that notion into the real world with their stage production of the movie Alien. Done as a labor of love, the play was a collaboration between three teachers and 16 students (the school doesn’t even have a drama department), and the sets and costumes were largely made from donated and recycled material. The video below shows the trailer that was made to advertise the play, and two scenes captured by audience members. Alien: The Play drew national attention, well deserved for this wonderful and inspiring work.
