The musical adaptation of Carrie, which received a notoriously short run on Broadway before achieving cult fame, will play a large part in an upcoming musical episode of Riverdale.

The April 18 episode of CW's gritty take on Archie will feature 11 numbers from the Michael Gore and Dean Pitchford score as the students of Riverdale High put on the show.

According to a prop cast list, Cheryl Blossom (played on screen by Madelaine Petsch) will take on the title role. Also taking center stage are Archie (K.J. Apa) as Tommy Ross, Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) as Chris Hargensen, and Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) as Sue Snell, and Alice Cooper (Mädchen Amick) as Margaret White.

The musical adaptation of Stephen King's novel premiered in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1988. The Broadway bow, which featured Tony winner Betty Buckley as Carrie's mother Margaret, closed after just 16 previews and just five regular performances.
