Depending on who’s doing the counting, anywhere from 15% to 75% of Americans are said to have a fear of public speaking. Arthur Read knows their pain. The title character of “Arthur and Friends Make a Musical” faces a challenge that seems more daunting than all the labors of Hercules combined: Write his own story or song … and perform it in a third-grade class production … alongside his friends, who all seem more creative … in front of the entire Elwood City community.
