Welcome

 

Welcome to Innovocative Theatre, where we believe theatre should be innovative, evocative, and thought provoking. We are based in the Tampa Bay area, and we strive to produce theatre that engages the audience in powerful character-driven stories. We think theatre should make you think; that theatre should open up a dialogue, and that theatre can be a way to safely examine differing point of views.

Many thanks to the Gobioff Foundation

“An insightful and hilarious play, Underneath the Lintel offers an inspiring vision of a person who discovers it’s not too late to truly live life. Just the simple act of turning a page could very well lead to a whole new chapter.”

Theatermania.com

“…along the way, his investigation becomes a magical mystery tour leading back to the time of Christ… the fulcrum upon which the play’s teeter-totter events ultimately hinge.”

The Los Angeles Times

“…you will be totally pulled into this lonely man’s obsession with discovering the truth, no matter what.”

'Innovative' And 'Provocative'

“No, it’s not a typo. The new theatre company’s name is Innovocative Theatre, which immediately gets a red underline when I type it in my Word document (it thinks it’s a misspelling). There is obviously no such word, but it has been cleverly created by Staci Sabarsky and Dennis Duggan for their new theatre company, incorporating two of my favorite words, ‘innovative’ and ‘provocative.”

Peter Nason, Broadway World

We Excitedly Welcome Innovocative Theatre

“…we excitedly welcome Innovocative Theatre to our local theatre family. And the good news is, they score a win with their first outing.”

Broadway World

Poised To Become A Signification Player

“— Innovocative seems poised to become a significant player in a theater scene that urgently needs more production companies.”

Creative Loafing

Acting, Stage Movement, And Pace Are All Top Flight

“Staci Sabarsky, Artistic Director for Innovocative Theatre, makes her mark in our area with her strong direction of KEELY & DU–acting, stage movement, and pace are all top flight”

Peter Nason, Broadway World

With The Powerful KEELY & DU, They Have Finally Arrived

“Innovocative Theatre entered the Tampa theatre scene last year with a serviceable Proof; it was a good show with lots of potential, but they weren’t quite a local player yet. That has now changed. With the powerful KEELY & DU, they have finally arrived,”

Peter Nason, Broadway World
