‘Riverdale’ to premiere ‘Carrie’ themed musical episode


Riverdale will be airing a Carrie-themed musical episode in April!

Move over, Josie and the Pussycats: Now everyone else on Riverdale is ready to sing, too.

The CW teen drama will unveil its first musical episode later this season, TVLine has learned, as Riverdale High’s drama department mounts a production of Carrie: The Musical. The episode — airing Wednesday, April 18 at 8/7c — will feature the cast singing a whopping 11 songs.

The school’s production of the Stephen King horror classic will be directed by Betty’s BFF Kevin Keller (referred to as a “future Tony winner” — ha! — by the tongue-in-cheek press release), with snarky redhead Cheryl Blossom playing the lead role of telekinetically blessed teen outcast Carrie White. (Good thing red is her color.) Veronica will play mean-girl antagonist Chris, with Betty and Archie playing golden couple Sue and Tommy.
