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.

Boy Gets Girl

by Rebecca Gilman

“A disturbing chiller about a woman whose life of accomplishment is quickly destroyed by a disturbed admirer, the play works powerfully at its most basic level, as a suspenseful tale about the unraveling of a strong woman’s sense of security in the urban jungle. It certainly will touch a tender nerve in everybody who’s ever squirmed through a creepy blind date … “

– (Variety)

“The #1 play of the year! Rebecca Gilman is a playwright to hail.  Boy Gets Girl is gripping and important–the finest, most disturbing American play in years!”

– Time Magazine

“The play is as creepy as it is well-made, by turns funny and frightening and dramatic, and it makes for a suspenseful, thought-provoking evening of theater.”

– American Theatre

'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.”

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.”

Poised To Become A Signification Player

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

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
