Devon Hayakawa (any pronouns used with respect) is an actor, dramaturg, playwright, and all-around nerd.
California born and with an Indiana degree, Devon has a passion for storytelling in any and every form. She made her Chicago debut as Kasey in Baked! The Musical as part of the Chicago Musical Theatre Festival (Best Supporting Performer Award), and she's excited to continue working in the Windy City as John the Baptist/Judas in Godspell (Theo Ubique) once it's safe enough to perform again. She is currently represented by DDO Artists Agency.
Other favorite roles include: Deb in Ordinary Days, Maggie in A Chorus Line, Multiple Roles in Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992, Jo March in Little Women, Witch in Into the Woods, and Albert in Newsies.
While Devon loves being onstage, she enjoys working as a dramaturg, playwright, and even dabbling in directing as well! Her work has been recognized at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (Dramaturgy Region III Winner and National Finalist), Chicago Dramatists (Playwriting & Directing), as well as her alma mater, Ball State University.
Devon is currently staying at home (and wearing a mask when she's out for groceries) and filling her time with reruns of Taskmaster and D&D campaigns!
