Looking incredibly glam in the promotional snap while revealing the exciting news to her 700,000 Instagram followers, fans swooned over the blonde beauty while expressing their excitement.
With her blonde locks tied atop her head, Sheridan could be seen topless while in deep blue water.
Taking to the photo-sharing app, the actress penned: "Very very excited to be returning to the west end in this wonderful play."
In the comments section, one fan penned: "Amazing and beautiful," while another simply said: "Stunning."
A third then gushed: "Damn woman, you just get sexier and sexier."
While a fourth added: "You're so talented in everything you do."
And a fifth said: "Excited is an understatement. Congratulations beautiful soul."
Elsewhere in the comments, hundreds of people were telling the actress that they had bought tickets and "couldn't wait" to see her in the show.
With many adding that the role was "made for her".
In 1986 Willy Russell wrote Shirley Valentine – the play, and three years later it was adapted into a hit film.
The movie, which had actress Pauline Collins at the helm, depicts a woman feeling trapped in a world of housework and chores.
In the play and film, Shirley is a housewife from Liverpool and longs for her life to have a huge shakeup.
Having conversations with the walls in her home because of her unloving husband, she is thrilled when her friend invites her on a trip to a Greek island, where she finds the joy in life again.
Speaking of her new role, Sheridan said: "As a mum now myself I'm delighted to be playing theatre's best-loved mum and I am honoured to be entrusted by Willy Russell to bring his Shirley to life once again in the West End.
"Now, to practice cooking chips and egg!"
The stage show will run for 12 weeks from February 17 2023 at the Duke of York's Theatre in London's West End.
