The Journey

Spellbound started out as just an idea in the back of a young college student's mind.  "I want to write a musical fairytale that breaks all the rules," thought composer, Ben Boecker, roundabouts his Junior Year of College.  He never dreamed that his musical would go on to win the UNC Chapel Hill Undergraduate Playwriting Award, secure his enrollment in the BMI Musical Theater Writing Workshop, win the Grand Prize in New Musicals Inc's 2016 Search for New Musicals, and have an Equity Showcase in NYC in 2019.  Nor did he dream that he would one day add a co-bookwriter to his team, and create a Spellbound website, featuring songs and demos sung by his incredibly talented friends, and ask the universe to please help him take this show from the page to the stage​.
