Price: $15.00 Advanced Purchase
Location: Hardwick American Legion Post #7 North Main St. Hardwick
Description: Come be a part of a tribute show for the King of Rock & Roll Elvis Presley performed by National Entertainer Mark Shelton. Featured on CBS, Inside Edition, ABC News, Good Morning America, for his incredibly strong voice Shelton amazes audiences at venues large and small. Mr. Shelton is known for his performances as Elvis Presley the King of Rock n' Roll mirroring the lyrics of the King’s songs from the 50’s – 70’s. His diversity allows him to nail songs of other artists of the era with such a likeness listeners think it’s a recording of the artist and are stunned to discover it is a live singer on stage. Local fans know him best for his NE Kingdom performances inspired by his wife Lisa’s battle with stage four lung cancer. Lisa’s one wish was to have her husband sing for her as Elvis, and Mark lovingly full filled this wish, losing over 150 pounds to sing in an Elvis replica jump suit, to a sold out concert in her honor in Derby Line, VT. Since that time he has sung for multiple benefit concerts around the region to raise money for cancer awareness & his wife’s care. We are honored to have this amazing entertainer sing for the Hardwick Community on Sunday, March 26th starting at 2:00pm. This is a performance not to be missed as Mark competes in the World Championship for Elvis Tribute Artist in May, where he will perform with the best artists in the world.

28 Bread & Puppet presents Faust 3
Time: 7 pm
Price: Suggested donation $10-15
Location: Heartbeet Lifesharing, 218 Town Hill Rd. Hardwick
Description: Bread & Puppet Theater comes to Heartbeet Lifesharing, 218 Town Farm Rd. in Hardwick, Tuesday, March 28th, with a new play, Faust 3, a proletarian rumination on displacement, heaven, and satisfaction in the tradition of Medieval Faust puppet shows and Goethe’s epic verse drama. As thematically and formally diverse as Goethe's Faust 1 and 2, Bread and Puppet’s Faust 3 draws its public through a dreamlike succession of scenes depicting various aspects of proletarian experience in our time: from refugee migration, to the ubiquity of the gun; from the hunger that accompanies food product diversity, to the daily experience of factory workers, the rebellion of prisoners, and the adoration of the sun. "Faust 3" himself is played by a small hand-puppet, darting between the hopper and the spout of a giant grain mill. A phalanx of black folding chairs menaces the masses with its resolutions of pity. The arms of a giant blue embracing puppet fill the stage. Lubberland choral dancers hop, wiggle, and whistle. And a purple brass band arrives to jitter levity into the feet of the population. After the performance Bread and Puppet will serve its famous free sourdough rye bread with aioli, and Bread and Puppet’s “Cheap Art” – books, posters, postcards, pamphlets and banners from the Bread and Puppet Press – will be for sale. The Bread and Puppet Fight-Against-The-End-Of-The-World String Band will welcome the public. Bread and Puppet Presents Faust 3, 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, March 28th at Heartbeet Lifesharing, 218 Town Farm Rd. in Hardwick, VT. TICKETS: $10-25 sliding scale at the door, no one turned away for lack of funds.
