Troupe members of the “Stop Senior Scams (SM) Acting Program” ham it up to help others learn how to protect themselves.
In collaboration with the Ventura County Adult Abuse Prevention Council (VCAAPC), please join Cypress Place Senior Living for a fun, free and educational program on avoiding senior scams.
The Stop Senior Scams (SM) Acting Program uses theater to dramatize senior scams. Members of the troupe, ages 60 – 97, write and perform skits based on their own personal experiences. It is a memorable way to equip those who are vulnerable with the knowledge they need to protect themselves.
Using popular songs like the Rolling Stones “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”, “Getting to Know You “, from the Rogers and Hammerstein musical “The King and I”, Abba’s “Money, Money, Money”, and the Supremes “Stop in the Name of Love”, the troupe brings theatricality, laughter and excitement to a commonly frightening and frustrating topic.
The program was founded in 1997 by director Adrienne Omansky who was a teacher of older adults and adults with disabilities. The Stop Senior Scams (SM) Acting Program has been recognized by the U.S. House of Representatives and the California State Assembly, according to Nancy Cole, an eldercare manager and board member of VCAAPC.
