"We all say bravo, well done."
Students at High School of North Bergen recently went viral to make an incredibly complicated stage production of the 1
Ripley actress Sigourney Weaver recorded a video message for the cast and crew, congratulating them and sending greetings to others involved in the drafting of the 1979 original and the 1986 sequel Aliens.
"I saw a little of your production of Alien, [and] I just want to say so amazingly," Weaver said. "You put so much heart and soul into it, and the alien – I must say – so much to me."
She continued to share the greetings of other creators in the films Alien and Aliens.
"I just want to send our compliments. Not just from me, but from James Cameron and the original screenwriter Walter Hill," she said. "We all say bravo, well done."
Weaver closed the video with some advice to the students.
"You know the alien can still be around, so … when you open your locker, just do it very slowly."
Aliens director Ridley Scott also sent an official approval to the school director Perfecto Cuervo and gave his own praise and advice to students.
My favorite director ] @Sir_RidleyScott just gave North Bergen Drama Club its official endorsement for "Alien: The Play"! Thanks Mr. Scott to make Alien and let us share it with a new generation! Gladiator: The Play in 2020! YES! – Perfecto Cuervo (@CuervoPerfecto) March 28, 2019
may be the greatest lesson for ALL YOU, and your future plans – stick to this determination and spirit in everything you do and you will succeed – don't let anything put you off or sit back, Scott said.  Cuervo took about an hour and a half to customize the play from the movie, while art director Steven Defendini monitors the play's appearance and prop creation.
