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.
Featuring a group of flawed and edgy characters, this show explores the 'real news topics' we talk about every day, and the complicated lives of those who present them.
Written from personal experience, this dramedy looks at what it’s like to be a young woman who’s not healthy but not dying, and the friendship that can be fostered through shared experience.
Fleur and Alexandra are Out of this World
Fleur and Alexandra are hapless unemployed heroes. After getting a job working for The Sun, they encounter Gaia who has just discovered the World Turtle is missing and tasks them to recover it.
Creatures of the Deep
Be taken on a journey beneath the surface to meet a plethora of beautiful, wild sea creatures - all the while following the path of a plastic bag as it gets carried to the very depths of the ocean.
Baby Bi Bi Bi
A wickedly funny, often filthy cabaret about being a bisexual woman.
Age of Stephen
If you're a Farnsey Fanatic like Stephen, get ready for a night of unforgettable music, stories and laughs in a loving tribute to the greatest voice our country has ever produced.
A centuries-old stone gargoyle atop a church is struck by lightning and falls into the river below. By some unknown miracle he is granted life.
Lulu Venom and Suckabelle create a high-femme-queer-dream world on the stage, blurring the lines between passive and-power; beauty-and terror; and embodying the duality of high-femme existence.
You are a great listener.
Join us for a drink, a show, or both. Or several of both.
Established in 1999 the Club is the best place to see young rising stars, household names, and the odd big fancy superstar who misses the feeling of performing to an intimate crowd.
We have between two and eight shows every night, our program changes weekly, new shows come up daily, and it’s perfectly ok to make visiting a habit.
Our bars serve award-winning cocktails in rooms decked out by an enormous collection of kitsch.
Producers, we want your shows.
With over 1100 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.
Give your friends the choice to come see any one show (regardless of ticket price) and pick a drink from our menu. At $50 per person, it's a great way to give people you love a night they'll love.
