NCTC Drama presents spooky play

North Central Texas College Drama is gearing up for their Halloween show, “Spook”, directed by NCTC Chair of the Visual and Performing Arts Department Thom Talbott.

This spooky production is the story of two love sick women and one handsome ghost - what could possibly go wrong in this romantic comedy with a sinister twist.

“It has been new and exciting to play a silent character whose whole purpose is to invoke emotion,” said Dylan Sanchez who plays the Ghost.

The cast has been hard at work since August to prepare for the upcoming performances.

This is NCTC student Dean Coburn’s first play with NCTC at the college level. “This show has been more personally driven than anything in high school,” said Coburn. “Thom really lets us present our own ideas and run with them.”

Tickets are on sale now for performances on October 31, November 1, and November 2 at 7:30 p.m., all at the First State Bank Center for the Performing Arts on the NCTC Gainesville campus.

“I love Halloween,” said Kendra Flusche, who plays Eleanor Cumber, “so it’s really cool to actually be playing a character for Halloween and not just dressing up!”

Tickets are $10 for Adults and $5 for Youth; NCTC students can get in free with their Student ID. You can call the box office at 940-668-3355 for tickets or go online to

“Rehearsals for this play have been so much fun,” said Grace Dieter, who plays Lolly Cumber. “This show has elements of drama, spookiness, and a little silliness, so it’s going to be a fun show for everyone involved!”
