Upstairs/Downstairs at the Tampa Bay Hotel with Mr. & Mrs. Bergner, 1890s

During the 1890s, from December to April, the Tampa Bay Hotel was a lively place for the elite to visit during the winter social season. Gilded Age visitors Mr. and Mrs. Bergner have arrived to see and be seen, but what should this wealthy duo wear to appear their best? This humorous performance demonstrates the many layers worn in the 19th century and examines the reasons for this period’s elaborate clothing and accessories. Mr. Bergner is played by Mike Norton, and Mrs. Bergner is played by Roberta Koutney.

Upstairs/Downstairs at the Tampa Bay Hotel is based on original research conducted by the Henry Plant Museum. Professional actors recreate the attitudes and mores of a bygone time, along with the sorrows and joys of their existence. Performances are 30 minutes. Arrive early, as seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

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.
