Dante Melucci has announced that he will play his final performance in School of Rock on May 8th. Go see him while you can, and get more information in his Instagram post below:


Hi all, I wanted to let everyone know that my final performance with "School of Rock: The Musical" will take place on Sunday, May 8. I've aged out of the role and so it's time for me to go. While I'm saddened at the thought of not taking the stage as the Freddy I created for the Broadway stage, I find comfort in the fact that it has been an amazing, almost impossible ride over the past year. I'm looking forward to what lies ahead for me. Thank you to everyone for sharing in this experience and for all your support and love over these past 12 months. You've helped make it a more complete experience for me. I've grown physically, for sure, but mostly I've matured into a kid who's fast learning about himself and what he's capable of. And for that, I'm forever grateful. Dante
