Spellbound was launched in 1989 to offer young people an introduction to musical theatre and provide a pipeline of young people into the main group's productions.

The Spellbound Youth Production Summer Show 2016 was Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and was performed from 4th to 6th August 2016 at the Frome Memorial Theatre.

Over the years Spellbound has gone from strength to strength and each year now attracts around 100 youngsters to its Workshop. After Auditions during the Workshop, the youngsters rehearse weekly until the first week of the Summer Holidays when they have an intensive one week workshop, when most of the rehearsing takes place, before they present a fully costumed production towards the second week of the Summer Holidays. Youngsters are encouraged not only to take part on stage but also involve themselves with backstage activities such as props, costumes, scenery and lighting etc.

Many onlookers now consider this to be the most important part of the FMTC calendar as not only does it give youngsters a wonderful opportunity to be involved in musical theatre but also adds life skills that will be transferable as the children move on. Things like communication skills, team building and confidence raising are all obvious benefits that those involved enjoy.
