Now everyone wants to get into the act. Riverdale will be doing a musical episode, as Riverdale High’s drama department will be doing a production of Carrie: The Musical. The episode, which will air April 18th, will feature 11 different songs.
The production of the Stephen King horror classic, will be directed by Kevin Keller (Casey Cott) and Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch) will play Carrie White. Veronica (Camila Mendes) will be the mean-girl Chris while Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Archie (K.J. Apa) play Sue and Tommy. Alice Cooper (Mädchen Amick) is even getting into the cast playing Mrs. White.
Singing isn’t a new thing in the series. Josie (Ashleigh Murray) regularly sings with the Pussycats and we’ve heard Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Cheryl all sing at one point or another. But will this give us our first opportunity to hear Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and the rest of the cast hit a few notes?
Series writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa tweeted out the below cast list and said, “Dream episode of Riverdale coming up!”
Riverdale, which is in it’s second season, airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
