“Lone Star Spirits,” a comedy written by Josh Tobiessen, debuts on the Red Barn Theatre stage next week.

The show is a coming-home story, a reconciliation story and a small-town-hero story taking place in a dwindling Texas town.

“Lone Star Spirits” runs Wednesday, June 19, through Saturday, June 29, with no performance on Sunday, June 23. Each performance begins at 7:30 p.m.

Marley, played by Helen Goosby, is making a trip home with her new beau, Ben (John Lloyd), to visit her estranged father, Walter (Boyd Stearns), in his shabby liquor store. Add the unexpected ex-boyfriend, Drew (Jackson Liedl), and the former classmate, Jessica (Mandi Tietz), delaying Marley’s real reason for her visit.

Directed by Patsy Vork, this funny show with memories and past entanglements looks at family, those who stay, those who leave their hometown and the ghosts that stay with them.

Due to language, this show is for mature audiences.

Michael Bell will display his works in the Gallery during the show.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling 715-234-8301 or 888-686-3770. Those attending the show are asked to claim their tickets by 7:15 p.m. the night of the performance.
