About Haddon

Raised by a travel writer from California and a psychologist from rural Canada, Haddon learned how to be at home during temporary stays in far off places or to inhabit the psyches of others. When he was five, an upright piano appeared in the tiny common room of his home in Nova Scotia, a gift from his grandmother, an accomplished cinema organist. Ever since then, Haddon has found that for him home could only be found inside an instrument you have yet to play. Haddon’s music embodies the competing desires of wanderlust and belonging and reflects our contemporary reality that we are both members of a tribe and global citizens. His musical career has taken him to Boston where he studied film scoring at Berklee College of Music, New York City and Atlanta for musical theater, Switzerland, the United Kingdom. From the Mauretanien rhythms and instrumentation of the award-winning short film “Trail fo Hope, to the Celtic Rock Pop and Soul based songs of “The Snow Queen: A New Musical,” which won him praise from The New York Times as a “fairy tale that rocks,” Haddon is driven to write music and lyrics that connect with listeners and help to tell a great story.

    "LAG: A Zoomsical Comedy" is the worlds first original zoomsical and was recently named one of the "19 Unmissable Online Theatre Experiences" by American Express Essentials Magazine. LAG is a new musical comedy, devised, written, and produced by musical theatre artists over Zoom in April and May of 2020, all while adhering to social distancing guidelines. Created by composer Haddon Kime after a commission by Out of Hand Theater in Atlanta, GA, it tells the story of a class on meditation and self-care practices that has recently made the move to Zoom due to the COVID-19 crisis. Four students and an instructor bravely attempt to attain inner peace in this new online environment which is beset with all the distractions and frustrations of our "new normal." Will they overcome glitchy technology, and the deep fear of losing everything, or will they implode in the process?
