SHENANIGANS is about communication - relating - flexible thinking - being open to new ideas - adapting to change - understanding context - having fun and making friends. We use the techniques of improvisational theater to practice games and exercises that address the social challenges and rigid thinking of Asperger’s and other mild-to-moderate autism spectrum and related conditions.

**CIRCLES update: The January shoot of Jesse Cramer's short film will be here before we know it. The excitement is growing!**
Shenanigans is excited to be a production partner in this project that will authentically showcase a day in the life of individuals with autism, without any of the stereotypes and melodrama often portrayed in popular culture and cinema. With a neurodiverse cast and crew, including over 80% with autism, we believe the concept is groundbreaking in furthering autism understanding and acceptance. And the January shoot is going to be held right here in Decatur (Atlanta)!
The short will be submitted to film festivals worldwide in anticipation of a feature-length project that will follow the same concept.
Production is funded thanks to a generous donor, but we will need some more generous people to donate the peripherals - car rental for the Los Angeles crew, lodging, snacks and meals on set, film festival entry fees, and any other miscellaneous needs. If you're interested in helping out, please contact us.
