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.

One Act Play Festival 2024

It's here! A celebration of exceptional works in a single act, featuring six original titles to captivate and inspire.

Comedy Festival 2024

Our Melbourne International Comedy Festival program is on sale and it's simply huge.

With a whopping 224 performances and the not-so-humble brag of having staged last year's Most Outstanding show, this is where you'll find the best comedy in town.

Mar 25 - Apr 21 2024


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.
