    COMEDY: The Garrens Comedy Troupe will repeat last week’s 11th season premiere today at 7:30 and 9:15 p.m. in 205 JRCB. The show features popular sketches “First Day of Class” and “Telephone Registration,” as well as new sketches dealing with interpretive dance and shirts, among other things. There are plenty of improvisations, too, of course. Pianist Jon Schmidt, who performed in last week’s shows, will NOT perform tonight; the rest of the show is the same. Tickets are $4 at 7:30, $5 at 9:15, and may be purchased at the door or in advance in 1321 ELWC. The Garrens are encouraging advance purchases, as last week’s shows sold out.
