The Jeudevine Memorial Library in Hardwick is offering an opportunity to see Mark Blashford of Rootstock Puppet Co. perform his show, virtually, Jack and Jill: Appalachian Heroes, today at 10 a.m. via Zoom. Jack and Jill: Appalachian Heroes is a one-man puppet show presented in the style of an Appalachian Jack Tale that addresses water conservation and water rights.

Mark Blashford is a Chicago-based actor, puppeteer, and musician. He specializes in traditional puppet performance, including: marionette, shadow, rod, and hand puppetry. As a trained puppet builder and wood-carver, Blashford has studied in Germany, Iceland, the Czech Republic, and The University of Connecticut’s Puppet Arts Program, where he received his MFA in puppetry.
