With a rallying cry of "JOY NOW!" MarchFourth Marching Band (known as M4 by their fans) throws itself and the audience into a swirling volcano of high-energy music and spectacle on Sunday, March 2, at the Wild Buffalo, Bellingham, 208 W. Holly St.

What began as a Fat Tuesday party on March 4, 2003, in Portland, Oregon has over the last eight years become one of the nation's best live touring acts.

Whether at a family matinee in a small town in Colorado or a sweaty nightclub in New York City or a festival mainstage in Louisiana, MarchFourth wins over audiences of all ages at every occasion, and has consistently been named a "festival favorite."

Cover: $17 at the door. Doors open at 9 p.m.

Auditions for "The Mouse That Roared" will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, March 4 and 5, at Claire vg Thomas Theatre, Dutch Village Mall, 655 Front St. in Lynden.

The format will consist of cold readings and possibly some improv work. There are abundant multi-generational roles and some great parts for female actors. There is no pre-casting and no preferential treatment.

The play runs May 1-18.

The comedy that blends a fairy tale sensibility with keen critique of global militarism. The tiny, unknown nation of the Duchy of Grand Fenwick decides that the only way to rescue its foundering economy is to declare war on the United States, lose, then accept foreign aid - but things don't go according to plan.
