Shalerpalooza returns to the stage at Mr. Smalls Theatre, in Millvale.

On March 21, beginning at 7 p.m. Shaler Area student musicians and soloists will take the stage for Shalerpalooza 11, a concert to benefit the class funds. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door or $8 if purchased in advance.

More than 300 students and adults are expected to attend this year’s event and proceeds will be split between the four high school class’ class funds which help offset the cost of senior year events such as prom, banquets, or graduation caps and gowns.

The event started in 2009 with a concert by Dale Mangold’s Pittsburgh-based rock band, Tobacco Road. Mangold, a Shaler Area custodial/maintenance staff member, has expanded the event over the years to feature more of the student body’s musical talents.
