BANG! and guest stars on the new season of CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL.

2) Should children be banned from performing professionally or should we lift the ban on child labor?
3) Can we do ANYTHING about gentrification in Portland?

The rounds go like this: Each team gets 5 minutes to make their argument for their side of the debate question. Then each panelist gets 2 minutes for rebuttals.
The audience determines the winners of each round, and the winners of the night are determined by audience vote!

It's going to be a blast, join us at Mississippi Pizza Pub to hear the debate, laugh at the arguments and rebuttals, eat the pizza, and vote for the winners!
