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

Over the years Spellbound has gone from strength to strength and attracts around 100 youngsters to pre-audition rehearsals. After the audition workshop, the youngsters rehearse weekly until the first week of the Summer holidays when they then participate in an intensive one week workshop and the show is put together. The company then perform a fully costumed production in the Frome Memorial Theatre.

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. 

Spellbound is such important part of the FMTC calendar as not only does it give young people 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.
