Arthur Makes a Difference

3 Male 3 Female
Arthur, a high school boy, is subject - like all high school kids - to intense peer pressures, mostly to do things which are not, shall we say, healthy
But, unlike so many kids nowadays, who so easily succumb, Arthur is not afraid to take a stand
He says NO to smoking, NO to partying, NO to drinking. He won't let any friend drive home drunk. He works to educate people about the importance of using seat belts
And, he starts a CounterAttack club in his high school. Amusingly, without being at all heavy handed in its proselytizing, Arthur Makes A Difference effectively dramatizes how kids can take control of their moral lives - if they just say "NO"
