By on April 1, 2010

KANELAND—Acid Reflux, the four-year-old comedy troupe hailing from Batavia, is no stranger to sharing with people who need it.

Over the years, they have given over $3,000 to deserving causes, including community theatres and multiple charities. All proceeds from “Acid Reflux in Wonderland”‘s performance on Friday, April 2, will be donated to the Time Out program at the LivingWell Cancer Resource Center, a program designed to help children with cancer as a part of their everyday lives.

The show starts at 8 p.m. at the Jester’s Courtyard Theatre, an extension of All Dressed Up Costumes, located within the historic Campana Building, 901 W Batavia Ave., Batavia. There is also an encore performance scheduled for Saturday, April 3, at 8 p.m.

The sketch comedy troupe was established in 2006 by Kaneland alum Bryan Renaud (class of 2009), and features all original material written and performed by current Kaneland students Ben Tennant, Kasey Ostarello and Ryan Stasell, as well as Bessie Tockstein (class of 2009).

The troupe also recently helmed the talents of Kaneland students Chelsea Roberts, Angela Filippin, as well as many other Kaneland alumni, including Erika Davidson, Katie Holloman and Esther Espino (all of the class of 2007). Nikky Prusinski (class of 2009). Steven Sledzinski, Jill Nigh and Emily Schmidt also join the cast.
