Written by and starring rocker Snider — who was seen on Broadway in Rock of Ages — the production will play a limited engagement through Jan. 4, 2015.

Directed by Adam John Hunter, the cast will feature Snider as the narrator with Bill McGough, Adam Michaels, Christina Nieves, Dan Peters, Wilam Tarris, Keely Vasquez, Taylor Yacktman and Milwaukee native Tommy Hahn.

Dee Snider's Rock & Roll Christmas Tale, according to press notes, "tells the story of Däisy Cütter, a heavy metal bar band looking to make it big even though the 80s are LONG over. This year, these four guys are ready to take the ultimate step and, in mythic rock tradition, sell their souls to the devil in exchange for success beyond their wildest metal dreams! But every time they try to seal the infernal pact, their head-banging anthems turn into warm-hearted carols. Soon these rockers are forced to realize their dreams of stardom are no match for the Christmas spirit."

The production will be choreographed by Robert Tatad with music supervision and arrangements by Doug Katsaros. It will also feature scenic design by Rob Bissinger, costume design by Suzette Guilot-Snider, lighting design by Heather Gilbert and sound design by Nevin Steinberg.

John B. Yonover produces in association with Vicki and Bob Liggett, Charles Brennan and Mary and John Cooper.
