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.
Don’t Judge Me!
Whether it’s some random on the train or a dear old Aunty… Everybody has something going on behind closed doors, and isn’t it fun to take a guess of what that might be?
The Mighty Littles: FELT Like Murder
Melbourne's favourite impro puppetry troupe The Mighty Littles return with this high-energy, hilarious and completely improvised courtroom drama.
Benny Milligram: A Selection of Silly Songs
A light-hearted musical journey in song, through thought-provoking topics such as ethics, love, religion and bum scratching.
The Madwomen Monologues
The Madwomen from Baggage Productions are back for an eighth season of brilliant monologues showcasing the work of emerging writers.
Do you feel like a giant mess? Like you’ve not quite got any of your sht together? Love catchy pop bangers? *Confetti is for anyone who feels like they have no idea what they’re doing.
A reverse striptease artist, an aging diva, an introverted actor, two rival mimeokists, and a disgruntled captain keep the entertainment alive as uncertainty looms on a cruise ship caught in a mysterious fog.
Lucy has left it til her thirties to cast aside her good girl upbringing.
Now she’s out of control - calling out the queue jumper at the Coles deli, taking days to reply to a text, and not offering to help in the kitchen at Christmas.
No solos, no microphones, no auditions, and no show ponies – just a big group sing of some of the best pop music on the planet.
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.
