Hello there.

The Butterfly Club is a small theatre and cocktail bar in the heart of Melbourne. We have plenty of shows, delicious drinks, and an enormous collection of kitsch.

Queer Play Festival EOIs

Calling all creatives, storytellers, and passionate performers! We're seeking captivating one-act plays that celebrate and honor the diverse spectrum of queer experiences for our festival in August 2024.

Applications close 16 June 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.
