The process has been a whirlwind two weeks, and Corbett said students also have memorized their scripts.
"The nice thing is because we're out of school, we can spend five hours in rehearsal," he said. "It's amazing - some of them have eight or nine scripts."
The production also has a cause. It honors the late Carla Radcliffe, the head of Capital's theater booster organization who died in April after a long battle with cancer.
Corbett noted that Radcliffe gave generously of her time, whether it was for Capital High, serving the music ministry at her church, Elk River Nazarene, or teaching private piano lessons.
"She was at the school constantly," he said. "It was really a big hit for all of us. My thinking, in talking with the family, was to dedicate this performance to her and her legacy."
Her son, rising senior Wesley Radcliffe, is a theater student and is in Friday's show.
A portion of proceeds from the production will be donated to the local chapter of the American Cancer Society in her name.
