  • Haddon Kime
  • Bern, Switzerland

A fairy-tale that rocks! … Kooky characters, scary plotting and potent rock numbers ring grown-up true. —The New York Times

Kime's score is an endlessly listenable pastiche with elements of bluegrass, punk rock, and symphonic metal. —Theatermania

Haddon Kime's pleasing score flies from punk rock riffs to tender ballads with grace... The music suggests the exuberance and pluck of "Wicked" and "Spring Awakening." —San Jose Mercury News

What I Love to do:
Original Music

Composing original music that helps to tell a great story! Merging musical knowledge with comedy or drama.


Writing words that will be sung from the perspective of a character. Moving the plot from point A to point B.


Character, tone, theme, plot, and irony. It's all part of a great big whole and custom music ties it all together.

Haddon Kime is an accomplished composer, lyricist and sound designer.

With piano as his primary instrument, his musical career started in high school, where he performed with several genres of musical groups, and produced his own album. At 17, Haddon wrote the music and lyrics for his own adaptation of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" which led to further awards and opportunities.

In 1996, Haddon left Tucson for Boston after winning a scholarship to Berklee College of Music. While in Boston, he built a reputation as many companies' first choice for score and sound, eventually being featured in the Boston Globe and Boston Magazine.

Haddon then moved to NYC, then to Atlanta, where he continued to build a formidable portfolio. Today he lives and works in Bern, Switzerland with his wife, who is a teacher of theology and psychology, and his 8-year-old daughter.


Haddon is an award-winning composer, lyricist, and sound designer whose rock musical adaptation of The Snow Queen was a featured production of the 2014 New York Musical Theater Festival where The New York Times hailed it as “A Fairy-Tale that Rocks!”

In fall of 2017, his rock musical parody of Star Wars and Wicked entitled "Wicket: A Parody Musical" opened to a sold out run at Dad's Garage Theatre Co. in Atlanta, GA.

Off-Broadway: Ring Twice for Miranda, The Atheist, Haymarket, and The Blowin' of Baile Gall. Regional: As You Like It, The Death of A Novel and Game On at San Jose Rep. Proof at George Street Playhouse. The Red Room: An Underworld Cabaret (2015 Reiser Lab Winner,) One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and Managing Maxine at Alliance. Resurgens and Blackberry Winter at Out of Hand. The Thrush and the Woodpecker and The Pillowman at Actor’s Express.

Haddon is the winner of the 2004 & 2007 IRNE award for best original music/sound design as well as the recipient of a 2009 TANNE Foundation Award for Artistic Excellence. Haddon shared the Best Overall Design award at The 2014 New York Musical Theatre Festival for his work on The Snow Queen, and also too home the award for "best original music" by the San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle for his score to "Game On" by Dan Hoyle and Tony Taccone.
