On Saturday, the Internet exploded when pictures and reports surfaced surrounding North Bergen High School’s epic stage retelling of Ridley Scott’s 1979 epic, Alien.

The crew of six students managed to build the production’s 15 sets, in addition to the costumes, which included four astronaut suits and two xenomorph bodies, all of which were made from recycled parts and materials.

The school’s art teacher told Buzzfeed, “To pull off something of that caliber, every set, every costume is repurposed in one way or another…They worked really hard all year.”
