The touring Broadway production of the '80s jukebox musical "Rock of Ages" stopping at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis this weekend will feature a couple of familiar faces, WCCO-TV reports.

Danny McHugh plays Joey Primo, the lead singer of the metal band Arsenal; while his little sister, Megan McHugh, plays Regina, a city planner who is attempting to save the Sunset Strip from being turned into a strip mall by developers.

The actor is also the understudy for Drew -- an aspiring rock star who falls for Sherrie, a small-town girl and aspiring actress -- and Lonny, the show's narrator.

The show presents the siblings a rare opportunity to actually see each other, Danny McHugh said.

"Fortunately, both of us have been working since we each graduated college, but our jobs have taken us all over the world and away from each other," he told WCCO.

Both Danny and Megan McHugh studied theater at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Locally, Danny McHugh has starred in such productions as "Cats" and "Jesus Christ Superstar" at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres.

"Rock of Ages" plays the Orpheum Theatre Friday through Sunday.
