Deon Denton – Artistic Director/Playwright

Deon Denton’s passion for the stage was developed while participating in a school play. She began writing short skits for her high school drama team and eventually was writing full length plays for her community theatre group.  


Promise Productions was officially launched in 2008 when Deon wrote and directed “Pieces of Me” a musical about a restless wife trying to escape her secret past.  The show was a hit with audience members, which led to a two week staging of the Musical at Toronto’s renowned, Theatre Passe Muraille, in 2013.


Deon has been privileged to see her work on the stage at many festivals and performances including the Toronto and New York Fringe Festivals and the Midtown International Theatre Festival (Off Off Broadway).
