The Wizengamot : A Harry Potter Debate!

  • Under The Gun Theater 956 West Newport Avenue Chicago, IL, 60657 United States (map)

A debate about our favorite young adult fiction, every week two new Harry Potter experts will debate issues of the day such as “Was Albus Dumbledore a good headmaster?” and “If you could be any Death Eater, who would you be and why?” A panel of witches and wizards will help judge the debate and declare a winner. Audience members will be in on the action as well; the room will be divided into the Hogwarts houses, which will then compete for points and prizes. Wizard attire encouraged. Muggles welcome.

"Comedic debates tend to be the funniest when they're taken the most seriously, and these company members really do know their stuff." - Dan Jakes, The Chicago Reader
