Chanticleer Community Theater /


Chanticleer Community Theater offers opportunities for elementary, middle and high school students interested in learning about the craft of acting. The acting workshop will touch on the many elements of performance including stage presence, speaking skills, imagination, warming up the body and mind, memorization, rehearsal etiquette and how to audition.

Our Children’s Theater offers an inclusive environment for children of all backgrounds, cultures, and lifestyles where they can study many aspects of theater arts, develop valuable life skills, and produce quality plays. Our students learn all the facets of a stage production, including writing, acting, set design, and behind-the-scenes work. Children’s Theater is an informal, classroom-based structure promoting self-expression, critical thinking, creativity, and teamwork. All students enrolled in our classes are eligible to audition in plays that are put on for live audiences, but those who are stage shy have plenty of other ways to contribute and participate. We are a nonprofit, 501c3 organization which is proud to serve the community of Council Bluffs and beyond.
