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 for your ongoing support of our mission.

Thank you Theatre Tampa Bay for nominating Jeannine Borzello for Outstanding Set Design for our production of A SHAYNA MAIDEL.

Thank you BroadwayWorld Tampa for the Best of the Decade nominations! We are humbled and proud to have artists Dawn Truax (KEELY AND DU), Marie-Claude Tremblay (NATURAL SHOCKS), and the ensemble of COLUMBINUS recognized for their outstanding performances, as well as designers Matt Beil (Lighting Designer for COLUMBINUS) and Jeannine Borzello Brown (Scenic Designer for A SHAYNA MAIDEL), and our Artistic Director, Staci Sabarsky recognized for their creative vision. We are humbled to have four productions represented among the talented list of individuals, companies, and productions throughout Tampa Bay.

Thank you Creative Loafing and Tampa audiences for nominating Innovocative for Best Theatre Company, Staci Sabarsky for Best Director, A SHAYNA MAIDEL for Best Production, Larry Corwin for Best Actor in A SHAYNA MAIDEL, Kayla Witoshynsky for Best Actress in A SHAYNA MAIDEL, and Marie-Claude Tremblay for Best Actress in NATURAL SHOCKS.

Coming Up Next!

 While our productions are on pause, Innovocative will be bringing you some alternative forms of entertainment that are safe, fun and interactive.

It’s sure to be an evening full of laughter, fun and frivolity!

For more information on how we can get the party started…email us at innovocativetheatre@gmail.com. Dates are available for June and July bookings.


How about a little murder, mystery and mayhem?  Are you looking for a fun, safe, interactive way to bring your friends and family together? Then, you will want to join us for BULLETS ON BROADWAY…an evening where you will get to act alongside professional actors while solving the crime!

All you need to do is gather your group of friends and pick a date! For a small donation to support the theatre, we will do the rest, including:

  • Send out the invitations and character descriptions to your guests
  • Provide costume suggestions, clues, and interrogation questions
  • Host the Zoom party for up to 20 guests
  • Guide the evening’s festivities to reveal the hand-selected murderer

'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.”

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.”

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
