If you need proof that kids these days are alright and amazing, simply cast your eyes on the students at New Jersey's North Bergen High School who put on a stage play version of the classic sci-fi horror film Alien.
The play was complete with all the trappings of the film, including the infamous facehugger alien, the stomach-bursting scene, and, yes, the large, menacing xenomorph that has come to haunt the nightmares of generations of moviegoers.
And it all looked amazing.

Behold, a high school recreation of the famous facehugger scene from the film.
Also, whichever student made the xenomorph costume for the play deserves all the awards.

There's more on the entire production from one of the students involved in the production in this Reddit thread that gives some insight as to how they pulled off some of the special effects and adds that most of the sets were made of recycled materials.
Additionally, the student says the production will be available on video in May and he plans to upload the whole thing, so keep your eyes peeled.
