Panelists said: “Spectacular…an outstanding and phenomenal production…Bravo for everyone involved for taking a musical I have seen multiple times and making it as fresh, exciting and powerful as the first.” Director Aubrey Berg was praised for his “seamless” direction: “Aubrey Berg said he had waited over 20 years to direct this musical at CCM and he could not have done it more effectively, with some masterful choices.” Musical director Steve Goers was commended for his “direction of these fine voices and in the outstanding orchestral accompaniment”: he did a “wonderful job with taking a beast of a show and making it sing beautifully”.
 
The panelists were impressed by the entire ensemble: “the show showcases the incredible depth of CCM's students..the talent level continues to amaze.” Blaine Krauss, as Jean Valjean, “gave a sensitive, true portrayal of the character…his voice was moving…he should go directly to Broadway.” Panelists also singled out Colin Kessler, as Javert, for his “outstanding” performance and “remarkable voice”, as well as Matthew Paul Hill’s portrayal of Thenardier: “hilarious in an evil and unctuous manner. He almost stole the show.”
