Inspection : Case study: Assessing learning or assessing a performance?

A group of students in the drama class at college have been working all term towards a theatre production. The leading player has studied hard and learned her lines well but her acting is wooden. Two weeks before the performance date a new student transferred to the drama class from another course .  She is a natural, confident actor and quick at learning her lines. The performance is next week. You have just heard that there will be a mock inspection of the college on the day of the performance. Who do you choose to play the lead part?
