Susan Boyle`s life to be immortalised in a musical

London: Scottish singer Susan Boyle`s life is set to be immortalised in a musical titled "I Dreamed A Dream".

"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," quoted her as saying.

The 50-year-old shot to fame with music mogul Simon Cowell`s talent show "Britain`s Got Talent" in 2009. Susan`s character will be portrayed by "Rab C. Nesbitt" actress Elaine C Smith.

Michael Harrison, producer of the musical, claims it will have all the qualities of a real-life "fairytale".

"She is an inspiring woman and her story is an excellent one to tell - someone with a raw talent who surprises the world and overturns all the odds to make a new life for herself. It`s got all the qualities of a fairytale, but with the added bonus of being absolutely true. I am looking forward to the tour very much," he said.

The musical will open next year at Newcastle`s Theatre Royal.
