Fol­low­ing a Sold Out Sea­son ear­lier in the year, The Date re­turns to The But­ter­fly Club! The But­ter­fly Club presents Dean Robin­son's break­out Com­edy: The Date, As part of Mel­bourne Fringe 2018.

This show fol­lows Justin as he grooms and groans for a first date, he's ner­vous and very out of prac­tice so what else can he do but call his best friend for ad­vice. He be­gins to pon­der past re­la­tion­ships and dates, and how they have shaped him to who he is to­day. With a range of songs from theatre to pop, Justin sings his was through dat­ing in the mod­ern age and find­ing clo­sure over re­la­tion­ships. But af­ter all this, can he still fol­low through with the date?

The Date ex­plores Love, Lust and Loss fea­tur­ing the vi­va­cious vo­cals of Me­gan Scolyer-Gray and Daniele Bu­atti on keys.

The Date is an hon­est LGBT story of the mod­ern age, which finds a way to con­nect to all au­di­ence mem­bers whether they're part of that com­mu­nity or not. A feel­ing of Love and the pain of loss is true for any­one, and at any age, but for the young gay men out there, try­ing to find love in a sex driven com­mu­nity, this one is def­i­nitely for them.

Dean Robin­son is an up and com­ing LGBT per­former, a grad­u­ate of Show­fit. He is an ac­com­plished chore­og­ra­pher and has per­formed in The He­len­dale Nude Footy Cal­en­dar and DRAGGED both as part of The Mid­summa Fes­ti­val 2017 and 2018 re­spec­tively. He was also fea­tured in CLOC Mu­sic Theatre's A Cho­rus Line. In Jan­uary this year Dean en­tered the Com­edy/ Cabaret world per­form­ing The Date to sold out au­di­ences.

Me­gan is also a grad­u­ate of Show­fit, she orig­i­nated the role ‘Abi­gal' in In Like Flynn, a new Aus­tralian Mu­si­cal, she's also been a reg­u­lar solo artist at the Ex­ford Ho­tel.

Dean is ex­cited to tell a story that both amuses and moves au­di­ences.

“I’ve al­ways found re­la­tion­ships in hind­sight so much more in­ter­est­ing than re­la­tion­ships in the present day, and find­ing hu­mour and clo­sure with these re­la­tion­ships can be an im­por­tant stage in let­ting go of the past. I hope this show brings joy to au­di­ences and sur­prises them with true vul­ner­a­bil­ity of love.” - Dean Robin­son
