Upstairs/Downstairs Theater - Livestream Online!
Live performances that bring hotel staff and guests to life. View livestreamed on Facebook or through Zoom.
Step back in time and enjoy the single-character performances that bring turn-of–the-century Tampa Bay Hotel staff members and guests to life. Each character is based wholly or in part on actual hotel staff and guests. Based on original research conducted by the Henry Plant Museum, these characters recreate the attitudes and mores of a bygone time, along with the sorrows and joys of their existence. Catch a glimpse of life at the Hotel through the eyes of each individual character. From the reminiscences of Henry Plant himself on what led him to build such a palace, to the letters home written by a Spanish-American War soldier, you will learn more about the time period through each character’s particular vantage point. Performances are 30 minutes.
Upstairs/Downstairs is graciously underwritten by Mosaic and with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.
The characters are performed in rotation-one each Sunday.
While the Museum is closed due to COVID-19, enjoy Upstairs Downstairs live on our Facebook page each Sunday at 2 pm.
