While NTTV cameramen flooded the UNT campus like a SWAT team Thursday afternoon, spectators stood in awe as they watched the rehearsal for the upcoming zombie takeover.

Out of Order, the UNT improv group behind this spectacle, will showcase a large-scale attack of zombies vs. humans today on campus.

“Everyone’s been waiting for a zombie apocalypse for years, and now it’s finally here,” said zombie actor Logan Williams, a radio, television and film senior.

The event will start today with the help of more than 200 UNT students dressed like the walking dead to the fullest extent, sponsored by Rose Costumes.

The 200 hell-growling students will attack on casted zombie survivors, which include theater senior Allegra Denes, economics senior Ryan Cortez, psychology freshman Morgan Moss and former North Central Texas College student Max Brown, a Denton resident.

The casted zombie survivors will fight off the zombies in an improvised way.

“It’s taken us about two weeks to get to where we are now with pre-production,” said Brent Coble, an RTVF senior and director of the attack. “It wasn’t very hard to get people to be on board with it because when people hear the word zombies, they ultimately get excited enough to say yes without question.”

Cameraman No. 2 for the zombie attack is RTVF freshman Noah Sargent.

“It’s a pretty awesome concept, and everyone has just been working really hard to get this as good as it is now,” Sargent said.

While the time and destination of the event is intentionally unknown, the group invites all UNT students to join the attack.

Participants will meet at 3:30 p.m. at Clark Park on Maple Street to get into flesh-eating character and help with the zombie takeover.

“This is going to be one of the most epic things to ever happen here at UNT, at least since I’ve been here,” said Kevin Phillips, an RTVF junior and executive producer of the attack.
