About the Triangle Club
All the performers as well as everyone else involved in the production of the yearly Melodrama are volunteers from the Julian community. The Triangle Club, a women’s group, which began in 1942, wanted to raise money for local charities by doing something a little more interesting than the usual “bake sales”. They began by putting on regular plays in the high school gymnasium using local talent. In 1956 they put on their first old-time Melodrama. The Melodrama remains their main fund-raiser. The proceeds provide partial college scholarships for many local graduates and monetary support for community sports, drama, Scouting programs, 4-H, underprivileged children and other philanthropic endeavors for the town. They bring Santa to the Town Hall in December, and participate in the annual Fourth of July Parade. The Triangle Club takes an active part in the Julian community year-round.
