Welcome to Chanticleer 
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.



Join us for an evening of celebration as Chanticleer looks back upon the past 67 years spent at 830 Franklin Avenue.  Surround yourself with the music, the stories and the people that made this address so special.  It’s one last chance to come together and honor the past while looking toward our new and exciting future at the Hoff Arts and Cultural Center.  As your community theater, we invite you to help us say “Farewell 830.”


Single performance admissions prices:
     Adults : $ 25.00
