The show, which will also be called I Dreamed A Dream, will begin performances at Newcastle's Theatre Royal March 23, 2012, before embarking on a U.K. tour.
Boyle will be played by Elaine C. Smith, best known for her role on TV's "Rab C Nesbitt" and a particular favorite of Boyle's.
In a press statement, Boyle commented, "I am happy that the musical is being produced, I never thought my life story would end up on the stage but a lot has happened in two years and it is a very exciting prospect. I hope everyone enjoys the show and I promise there will be a few surprises along the way."
