Holy Soap reports that the actress will join the cast of Legally Blonde: The Musical as Margot. In June, it was announced that she would leave the Channel 4 soap after almost ten years playing Steph Cunningham.
When she confirmed her decision to leave Hollyoaks, Stenson highlighted musical theatre as being where her interests lay.
"I'm ready for new challenges and I'm looking forward to pursuing a career in musical theatre," she said at the time.
Denise Van Outen will also join the show's cast as beautician Paulette.
Stenson will make her debut appearance on October 25 at the Savoy Theatre.
