The fifth annual Broadway Voices season is bringing a fun-filled season of Broadway stars to Garner Performing Arts Center.

The popular series returns to Garner with a series of one-night-only concerts that will be filled with excitement, amusement, and awesome entertainment as three of the most popular Broadway stars present their particular brand of performance.

The sparks were real when Gary Mauer and Elizabeth Southard took the Broadway stage as the Phantom and Christine in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera. Their electricity on stage was genuine.

The husband and wife met while working on a cruise ship, playing a pair of newlyweds in New York Honeymoon.  They later married.

Mauer has played both the Phantom and Raoul opposite Southard and they were cast together as Gaylord Ravenal and Magnolia Hawks in Harold Prince’s Showboat.

Capathia Jenkins, who just left Broadway smash hit, Newsies will take the GPAC stage by storm on January 31 with her "Capathia Jenkins is More Woman Than You Know." She brings a bigger-than-life personna to the stage. She made her Broadway debut in The Civil War and gained more acclaimed with her performance in Godspell.  Among her Broadway credits are Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me; Caroline, or Change; and The Look of Love.

Jenkins approaches a song the same way she approaches a script. She looks for the nuances, the secret hidden within the notes or text. She seeks the melody, harmony and rhythm. She asks herself: what am I trying to say? What do I want my audience to experience with me? She will take her Garner audience on a journey.

Alli Mauzey won't be arriving in Garner in the bubble that encased her as she made her nightly appearance as Glinda in Broadway's Wicked, but she will bring the same humor and tremendous talent that has made her a Broadway darling.

Mauzey has been called the best Glinda ever. The San Diego Union Tribune described Mauzey as an “extra-prissy witch with a  riotous …edge to her perk. She applies comic chops and also packs a knockout soprano and a loopy physicality.”

Mauzey has performed with symphony orchestras around the country after making her Broadway debut in Crybaby.
