Overview for Carlsen Center

The Carlsen Center is located on the campus of Johnson County Community College (JCCC) in Overland Park, Kansas (a major suburb of metropolitan Kansas City). JCCC is one of the region’s major providers for the performing and visual arts (Nerman Museum). 


Since 1990, Johnson County Community College has offered one of the largest multidiscipline performing arts series in Mid-America. From Broadway blockbusters to classical and chamber music ensembles, the variety of events programmed as part of the series attracts a wide demographic, mirroring the increasing diversity in Johnson County itself.


Around 175 events are held annually in the Carlsen Center, which houses four venues: Yardley Hall (capacity 1349); Polsky Theatre (424); Recital Hall (55) and Bodker Black Box Theatre (100). Wonderful acoustics and ease of access makes Yardley Hall and Polsky Theatre true gems that must be visited.
