After six decades, the Chanticleer Community Theaters is happy to be a part of the brand new Hoff Family Arts & Culture Center. This valued community theater has shared its love and passion for music and the arts on stage since 1952. Chanticleer Comunity Theater performs a wide repertoire of plays and programs to delight and entertain live theater lovers young and old. The mission of Chanticleer is to provide an educational, entertaining, cultural, and historic experience for the greater Council Bluffs and Metro community through the performing arts. Come and join us for shows filled with love, laughter, and fun!
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.
