Adrienne Omansky and her Stop Senior Scams Acting Program will dramatize the various seniors scams making the rounds and how to avoid falling for them.  A series of short plays will allow audience members to visualize the scams rather than just reading and hearing about them.  Adrienne and her troupe of actors will arrive by bus from out of town, so let's give them a warm welcome.
