The Arts Center at Iowa Western's 2023-2024 National Performance Season

Welcome to the 23rd annual National Performance Season at the Arts Center at Iowa Western! We are excited about the performers we are bringing to Council Bluffs in the next year. I hope you’ll find some of your favorites or maybe your next favorite among the artists on our season. The Arts Center is unique in Council Bluffs, with its lineup of professional artists in an intimate, comfortable space. It’s truly a privilege to be able to contribute to the quality of life here in our region. We thank you for your support of our performance series and look forward to being an integral part of our community for years to come.

The 23-24 National Performance Season features some of our biggest performances to date. We’ll start the year with The Rat Pack is Back, a tribute show direct from Las Vegas. We continue with The Music of Billy Joel and Elton John, starring Michael Cavanaugh. Next is a perennial favorite, Away in the Basement, a Church Basement Ladies Christmas. We’ll continue the celebration with a return trip by top Branson show, Christmas with the Petersens. The new year will bring classic country superstar Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives. We’ll follow that with one of the most successful acts in America’s Got Talent history, The Texas Tenors. In March we will feature a jukebox musical, Forever Young. We will close our season with the voice of Riverdance, Michael Londra and his Ireland with Michael Live show.
