The Fort Thomas theater district is the place to see and be seen thanks to Thomas: A Kentucky Musical. Billed as a country-infused hip hop musical, Thomas is a show for the ages. Written by the brilliant LM Samantha, the musical follows the life of General George Thomas. Samantha can also be seen on stage in the show's titular role.
The show features all your favorite iconic musical numbers, including “Civil War Battle #1,” “My Shot (of Old Pogue Bourbon),” and “It's Quiet Up Fort Thomas Avenue.”

Baker prepared for the role of Horse by spending time at local horse barns, and even made a trip to the Kentucky Derby last May. He also lived in storage shed behind LM Samantha's house. “We really wanted it to be as authentic as possible,” said Baker. “LM doesn't own a barn, so we made the shed work. I'm really going to miss my hay bed when this is all over.”
The major takeaway from the show: are you going to become the Rock of Chickamauga of your life, or will you let the war get you down?
