"CCM is blessed with a seemingly never ending supply of extremely talented young musical theater students and performers and they are put to good use here. As Candide, Nicholas Belton is a likable and believable youth who, though trying to remain true to what he has been taught, continues to question his beliefs along his journey through life. In addition to his fine acting, Mr. Belton's attractive tenor voice is quite reminiscent of that of Jason Danieley, who played the same role in the 1997 Broadway revival. Playing the female lead Cunegonde, Ashley Brown displays impressive vocal range and clarity and provides an expressive portrayal of the fallen royalty. Josh Dazel and Lindsay Pier turn in fine performances as the secondary principals, Maximilian and Paquette. As the Old Lady, Tory Ross demonstrates that she is a truly gifted physical and vocal comedienne, as she has repeatedly shown throughout her CCM career."
