Upstairs/Downstairs at the Tampa Bay Hotel
Step back in time with a single-character performance that brings turn-of-the-century Tampa Bay Hotel staff members and guests to life. Based on original research conducted by the Henry Plant Museum, “Upstairs/Downstairs at the Tampa Bay Hotel” recreates the attitudes and mores of a bygone time.
Arthur Schleman, Hunting & Fishing Guide, 1895
The dashing Tampa Bay Hotel hunting and fishing guide is adept at trapping all kinds of game, as well as hunting on horseback to avoid rattlesnakes. Mr. Schleman is a true storyteller who has definite opinions about everything from horseless carriages, called motorcars, to past and current events. He can recite poetry by heart and is a would-be gentleman of means. Arthur Schleman is played by actor Dan Khoury.
“Upstairs Downstairs” is a Henry Plant Museum presentation created through a partnership with the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and The University of Tampa.
