REALITY television favourite Susan Boyle will be 
joining the cast of the musical based on her life story at The Bristol Hippodrome next year.

The global singing sensation is set to appear in the exclusive 11-week tour of I Dreamed A Dream.

Susan’s appearance in the musical will be the first opportunity for people to watch her perform in the UK 
on stage since the Britain’s Got Talent tour in 2009.

She 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.”

Leading an outstanding cast and orchestra 
and taking on the lead role of Susan Boyle is 
Elaine C Smith, star of the hit West 
End stage play Calendar Girls, and 
who is best known for her 
portrayal of Mary Doll in 
Rab C Nesbitt on BBC 
Television.

Michael Harrison, 
producer of I Dreamed A 
Dream, said: “Having 
Susan join the cast to 
perform the finale 
of her musical is 
amazing for both 
ourselves and 
audiences across
the UK and Ireland.

“Susan continues 
to defy the odds 
and surprise the 
world with her 
record-breaking 
albums. “Now she can add a musical to her list of achievements and I can’t wait to see the audience 
reaction when she walks on stage.”

This astounding musical will make you laugh and cry but most of all dream. If she can dare to dream so can you.

The production will be staged at The Bristol 
Hippodrome from May 1-5.

Tickets, priced 
£25.50-39, are available via www.bristol
