The Mission of Chanticleer is to provide an educational, entertaining, cultural, and historic experience for the greater Council Bluffs Community through the performing arts.
Since our start in 1952 we have shared our love and passion for music and the arts with the greater Council Bluffs Metro Area. We pride ourselves on our history, having presented all types of shows including the classics, regional premiers, cutting-edge new releases, and family-centered performances. We encourage community involvement by hiring only local directors and casting local actors for our productions. We consider ourselves a valuable asset to cultural development and the local community theaters.
Coming Next - Guys and Dolls, Jr. (September 11th - 20th)
Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys And Dolls JR. is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend, nightclub performer Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. Guys And Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.

Lucy Seward, whose father is the doctor in charge of an English sanitorium, has been attacked by some mysterious illness.
