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.
Sir David and his Animals
The magic of Sir David Attenborough live on stage!
Watch as two hapless but enthusiastic clowns recreate extraordinary scenes of the natural world.
Digging Deeper: Secrets of the Neo-COALonial Movement Unearthed!
A satirical exploration of the ties between billionaires, dictators, aggressive 'fake news' assaults on democracy and human and environmental abuse. None of that is at all funny, but this show is!
The Other Side of 25
A musical comedy about Amory. She's stuck, pregnant, on the other side of 25.
No rehearsal, no preparation, no holds barred; this show is the thoughts of one woman when she thinks about sex with men. A different man every night is charged with reading her script aloud, sight unseen, in front of an audience – you!
A wild ride, with rhythm, body percussion, singing, stomping, clowning and the spirit of Scotland!
The Big HOO-HAA!
Fast, furious and funny, The Big HOO-HAA! is Melbourne's longest-running and best-loved weekly impro comedy show. This is a popular show in a tiny theatre: book ahead.
Our free weekly piano bar featuring some of Melbourne's best entertainers. Did we mention it's free?
Full of wit, warmth and plenty of whiskey, Any Sugar is a musing on the nature of love that would have Jane Austen rolling in her grave.
Celebrating 20 years!
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.
