Steam roller

This years melodrama
"Apple ore lane"


"who gets steamed"

A foreigner (the Villain) arrives in Julian to start his own Apple Orchard but he needs something from his neighbor (the Heroine) first.  An intuitive newspaper reporter harbors suspicions that something is not up to snuff and shares her skepticism with a loyal orchard worker (the Hero), who already suspects that this dubious newcomer is not who he appears to be. Will he succeed in his dastardly plan? Will his neighbor be steamrolled into submission? To find out the answers to these and other questions and be a part of the booing and cheering audience participation,  be sure to come to the old time Melodrama in the Julian Town Hall! 

Between acts will be an “olio” (variety show) featuring junior cancan dancers, a variety of local talent acts, and/or the famous Triangle Club Chorus (a.k.a. Julian Floozies), entertaining with hilarious old-time songs. Olio acts may differ for each performance.

The audience is always encouraged to participate by booing the villain, cheering the hero, and crying “awwww” for the sweet heroine. Sometimes the characters need warning or advice -- but keep it clean -- it’s a family show! 

Participation in the all-volunteer amateur production requires a huge time commitment, which has been shared for more than half a century by almost every family in Julian. Former director Bobbi Green, who was involved in the melodrama for 46 or so years, thirty five of them as director, has finally decided to retire and has turned her director's chair and megaphone over to Garnette Welch who has been producer and director of most of our Julian High School plays. 

The melodrama is presented every weekend throughout October during Julian Apple Days, a great community effort that demonstrates the lively spirit of our town. Proceeds from the melodrama go toward scholarships for Julian graduating seniors and for sponsorship of local youth organizations and activities. Profits are also used to help sponsor local events such as the old-fashioned 4th of July Parade and a visit from Santa Claus to the Julian Town Hall for the children’s Christmas party.
