ALISON ARNGRIM'S CONFESSIONS OF A PRAIRIE BITCH TO BENEFIT LIFELONG AIDS ALLIANCE
Alison Arngrim (aka Nellie Oleson on Little House on the Prairie) will appear at Re-bar, 1114 Howell St (at Boren Ave.), on Thursday, September 11, and Saturday, September 13, from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., in her one-woman comedy show, Confessions of a Prairie Bitch. Arngrim is donating all proceeds from her two Seattle shows to Lifelong AIDS Alliance.

Arngrim's show is part confessional and part Hollywood gossip column, combined with an utterly self-indulgent trip down memory lane for actress and audience. The coup de grace comes with the creepy, campy reincarnation of the shrewish Nellie, who emerges from the shadows of Arngrim's psyche like the spirit of a lost child knocking on a séance table. After each show Arngrim does an "Ask Alison Anything" session, where she discusses some of her favorite screwball questions from fans and takes questions from the audience. As part of the Thursday benefit show, a special "Dinner with Alison" will be auctioned off and will include a chauffeured limousine and a meal for the lucky winner and guest at a trendy Seattle restaurant. Tickets are $16 and are available at www.brownpapertickets.com or 1-800-838-3006. Tickets will also be available at the door, if the show has not sold out. Doors for both shows open at 6:30 p.m. The bar opens at 7 p.m. This is a strictly 21-and-over show; ID required. More info on the show is available online at www.seattlelovesnellie.com.
