The CW drama series RIVERDALE is set to air the season three musical episode this Wednesday. The episode will feature a staging of Heathers: The Musical, based on the 1989 cult hit film starring Wynona Ryder and Christian Slater.

Watch a sneak peak below!

The episode, which airs this Wednesday, March 20 at 8/7c on The CW, will include nine songs from the off-Broadway musical adaptation that was first staged in 2010.

Josie will star as Veronica, the role made famous by Ryder in the original film, with Sweet Pea playing the Slater role of J.D.

The three Heathers will be played by Cheryl, Betty and Veronica, with Archie and Reggie playing jocks Kurt and Ram. The whole production is sponsored by The Farm.

As rehearsals for this year's musical "Heathers: The Musical" get underway, Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch), as queen bee Heather Chandler, channels her own HBIC to deal with a recent fallout.

Meanwhile, Betty (Lili Reinhart) grows increasingly annoyed by Evelyn's (guest star Zoe De Grand'Maison) involvement with the musical - as well as the lives of her friends. Elsewhere, Veronica (Camila Mendes) learns some devastating news about her family, and Archie (KJ Apa) and Josie (Ashleigh Murray) make a decision about their future.

Lastly, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) makes a surprising move against Gladys (guest star Gina Gershon). Marisol Nichols, Mark Consuelos, Skeet Ulrich, Casey Cott, Charles Melton and Vanessa Morgan also star. Maggie Kiley directed the episode written by Tessa Leigh Williams
