According to a Reddit thread from one of the North Bergen High students, the play ran at about an hour and 40 minutes. “It follows exactly like the movie with a few scenes added to kill time for scene changes,” they said.
And before you ask, yes, the production did include the infamous chest-bursting scene. “Someone was underneath the table with a hand puppet,” they explained.
But despite the low budget, the play still looks like it pulled off the best Alien moments in style.
