An original musical by Hadley Johnson.

Hadley Johnson is a rising senior at Cape Elizabeth High School. She is a prolific singer/songwriter and the playwright, composer, lyricist, and arranger of Afterthought, her first full-length musical.

Afterthought is a poignant coming of age story about two childhood friends forging their individual paths into adulthood considering the driving influences of family, friendship, career and love. The book, lyrics and music teem with youthful insight into the human condition.
