Susan Boyle will be in Southend next year appearing in the musical based on her life story.
The singer's taking part in an exclusive 11-week tour across the UK and Ireland joining the cast of I Dreamed A Dream.
She will be at the Cliffs Pavilion between Tuesday 8th and Saturday 12th May 2012.
It'll be the first time Susan's performed on a UK stage since the Britain's Got Talent tour in 2009.
Susan Boyle said: "I am thrilled to be a part of the musical about my life story and very much looking forward to stepping on stage and performing with the cast. It is an honest portrayal of my life and has been a cathartic process to be involved in."
Taking on the lead role of Susan Boyle is Elaine C Smith, star of the hit West End stage play Calendar Girls.
