Devon Sinclair is a Philadelphia based Director/Choreographer, performer, and teaching artist. Devon’s infectious energy and creative innovation has granted him artistic direction with the Walnut Street Theatre (Grace For President, The Me I Foresee), Broadway Theatre of Pitman (Elf, Kiss Me, Kate, The Pajama Game), Candlelight Theatre (Beauty and the Beast), Ritz Theatre Company (Memphis, Big Fish), and more!
After graduating from the Pennsylvania State University, Devon was chosen for the Walnut Street Theatre’s Dorothy Haas Acting Apprenticeship. This launched Devon into the Greater Philadelphia theater scene and ignited a passion for theatrical outreach. Working with programs such as Upper Darby Summer Stage, Limelight Performing Arts Center, and the education department of the Wilma Theatre and Walnut Street Theatre has allowed Devon to introduce the arts to students of diverse cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. From dynamic performances to engaging talkbacks to in-school residencies, Devon continues to champion the arts in all educational settings. Recently, Devon has teamed up with TeacherCoach as a Director to bring social and emotional learning-based theater workshops to school districts to help meet the needs of the individual, the institution, and the community! To battle the loss of artistic enrichment due to COVID, Devon helped create Brave Space Studios. Virtually, Brave Space empowers the creative spirit by offering an inclusive & communal place for students to discover new possibilities, embrace challenges and approach their world with confident compassion.
As an artist, Devon’s visionary mindset has always prioritized our need to move forward and challenge standards that no longer serve an engaged community. He believes theatre must continue to adapt and elevate the human experience. The power lies in the leaders, and we must inspire the leaders of tomorrow, today!
