Malone Hall gives students space to express art

TROY, Ala. (TROJANVISION) — Malone Hall is one of the oldest buildings on campus, but is home to some of TROY’s busiest students.

Junior theater major Kate Simechak believes the Troy Theatre Department has given her opportunities she wouldn’t have been able to get anywhere else.

“I’ve had a great opportunity to learn how to express myself artistically,” Simechak said. “As a person it has developed my confidence as a performer and as a person.”

Malone Hall is where Troy’s Theatre majors go to classes, rehearse and even perform some of their shows.

From the moment you step foot into the Malone courtyard, the influence of the arts is evident.

“They started helping me develop skills right away,” Simechak said.

Simechak was recently cast as Veronica in the theatre department’s production of the musical “Heathers.”

“I think that it’s a great opportunity to allow my personality shine through a character and help tell a story of somebody who is very similar to me in a lot of ways,” Simechak explained. “I would hope in a way that’s authentic and in a way that people can relate to.”

if you aren’t an arts major, you may have never known what all Malone Hall holds.
