The stage production, now titled Corrie!, is to celebrate 50 years of the Weatherfield soap, condensing the programme's history of births, deaths, marriages and other dramatic events into one action-packed two-hour show.
Former cast member Charles Lawson, who starred as Jim McDonald on the serial, has signed up to narrate the comedy play.
Speaking of the project, Lawson commented: "I am delighted to be narrating the piece and I am looking forward to this 50th celebration of the 'established church'."
Meanwhile, the production's full cast lineup has been confirmed as Leanne Best, Simon Chadwick, Katherine Dow Blyton, Matthew Wait and Josie Walker - who will play all the roles between them. Chadwick, Blyton and Wait have all had minor Weatherfield parts in the past.
As previously announced, Coronation Street's executive producer Kieran Roberts is to be the play's chief producer for ITV Studios, teaming up with Phil McIntrye Entertainment Ltd. The project is unrelated to the rumoured Coronation Street musical project.
Corrie! will be performed at The Lowry theatre in Salford between August 12 and 25. Tickets are on sale now and are priced between £19 and £25.
