Meet the Composer/Writer/Director
Haddon is driven to write music and lyrics that connect with listeners and help to tell a great story.
Raised by a travel writer from California and a psychologist from rural Canada, 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.
Haddon is an award winning composer for film and theater, as well as an accomplished sound designer. Haddon is making his directorial debut with “Lag: A Zoomsical.”
Before writing Zoom Musicals, Haddon composed music and lyrics for “The Snow Queen: A New Musical,” which won praise from The New York Times as a “fairy tale that rocks,” and “Wicket: A Parody Musical” an award winning comedy that re-frames the events of “Return of the Jedi” from the perspective of the Ewoks.
