Welcome to Chanticleer Community Theater
We're Your Community Theater

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.
