Hello there.

The Butterfly Club is a small theatre in the heart of Melbourne. We have plenty of shows, award-winning foyer bars, and an enormous collection of kitsch.

Producers, we want your shows.

With over 1200 performances every year, we are always on the lookout for new shows. If you are a producer (or self-produced artist) we’d love to hear from you.

With no minimum hire fee, free rehearsals, free front-of-house, free merch sales, and other assorted perks, the Club is a great place to get your work on stage without breaking the bank.


Help us out

We are doing our bit to run Covid into the ground: by staying closed when needed, and trading at limited capacity otherwise.

The last day we did trade at full capacity was March 17 2020. That was a long time ago.

To make things more interesting, in 2021 government support was scaled back to a level our legal department is forcing us to call "less than ideal".

If you are in a position to help, please donate to our fundraiser on gofundme:
