Upstairs/Downstairs Live Theater

Live performances that bring hotel staff and guests to life.

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 and are included with admission to the Museum.  Arrive early as limited seating is available on a first-come first-served basis.

Upstairs/Downstairs is graciously underwritten by Mosaic and the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

 

The characters are performed in rotation-one each Sunday.

All performances are open to the public with museum admission.
