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.

bye bye birdie

     A loving send-up of the 1960s, small-town America, teenagers, and rock & roll, BYE BYE BIRDIE remains as fresh and vibrant as ever. Teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie has been drafted, so he chooses all-American girl Kim McAfee for a very public farewell kiss. Featuring a tuneful high-energy score, plenty of great parts for kids, and a hilarious script, BIRDIE remains one of the most popular shows in schools across the country. 

The cast features: Adam Fulbright as Albert, Julia Vanderloo as Rosie, Grace Garrigan as Mae Peterson, Erich Swartz as Conrad, Krystin Holmes as Kim, Joe Goltl as Hugo, Otto Fox as Mr. McAfee and Mary Milbrath as Mrs. McAfee. Other cast members include Elizabeth Dickinson, Aaron Adkins, Xander Redden, Gracie Clark, Joslyn Stamp, Lydia Swartz, Atticus Walker, Dean Pope, Lilli Twohig, Heidi Goodrich, Isabella Bohnert, Violet Lotenschtein, Chloe Pryor, Ella Walker, Karyssa O’Daniel, Kandace Myers, Brooke Atteberry, Morgan Jaco, Natalie Simons, Nicholas Pudys, Annabelle Peterson, Claire Lewis, Max Goltl, Cora Johnson, Lillian Johnson, Brianna Kiley, Kaylee Simons, Alexavier Peterson, Emma Johansen, Delaney Mathews, Abigail Lewis, Therese DeLong, Aaron Lewis, Piper Trescott, Shalynn Ellis, Zane Walter and Kati Podraza.
