About the Carson Center

Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Paducah! The Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center or “Carson Center” is defined by the needs of the people it serves and is located in downtown Paducah. It overlooks the confluence of the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers. It also has become a significant component of the existing revitalization of Paducah’s downtown area and is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. It is a regional, multiple-use facility with space for public and private events of all types and features superb staging and acoustics for a wide variety of entertainment, cultural and education programming. The main hall seats 1806. The Paxton Family Foundation Lobby includes two sweeping staircases on either side and features amenities such as food/beverage areas and coat rooms. A commissioned hand painted mural spans the entire back wall of the lobby that depicts the four rivers region on a quilt backdrop. Home of the American Quilt Museum, Paducah is known as “Quilt City, USA”.

Paducah Ballet Partnership: The Rhythm Factory Vocal and Dance Experience

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Paducah children from The Rhythm Factory. The Rhythm Factory (TRF) is an experience that is anything but "cookie-cutter". Established in 2011, TRF is a school that encourages self-expression and individuality through the performing arts, striving in the growth and development of every child who finds their passion within these crafts. What matters most at TRF is that at the end of the day, each child has done THEIR personal best and by doing so, is gaining the self-assurance to push themselves further. This idea helps each dancer become better goal-setters and creative thinkers in whatever they pursue as adults.
