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. 

Chanticleer has moved to its' new location at 1001 South 6th Street in the 

Hoff Arts and Cultural Center.

Performance: July 16 - 19, 2020

Director: Dwayne Ibsen

Music Director: Jerry Gray

Choreography: Robin Putnam & Patti Zukaitis

The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall.
