Jason’s mom paid the taxi driver. There was a large
sign over the doors that said “The Howard Mann Theatre” and below it “Class
Acts – tonight at 6.” A young man greeted them at the door and showed them
where they should go. Jason entered a room with five other boys and girls and
their parents. A woman came in and smiled at them as she went over the rules of
the game. She told them who would be on each team. Jason’s teammates were Janelle and Steve.
Janelle was a year older than the boys. She was reading a book called Amazing
Facts. Steve was looking over a map of the United States. The three team
members put on red jumpsuits. Then, they went in and a woman put make-up on
them so they would look good on TV.
While they were waiting, people began to arrive and sit down. Janelle
said, “Did you know that all rainbows are made up of the colours red, orange,
yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet?” Steve said, “No, but did you know
that Mammoth Caves in Kentucky are over 330 miles long?” Jason gulped, “No, I
didn’t know either of those facts.”
