In 2017 a teaching staff work-to-rule decision jeopardized the NKEC's theatre performance of Disney's Beauty And The Beast. Phantom could not bare to see this happen so we joined up with a team of dedicated parents, a few caring community services, and some very generous local business to make pure magic happen for these kids.
After all... The Show Must Go On!!!
Local Theatre Performances
Phantom Effects has had the honor of working alongside some pretty impressive theatre productions here in Nova Scotia over the past few years. While working with the various schools and theatre companies we have had the great pleasure of meeting many wonderful people who have become family to us (you know who you are). Nothing is more gratifying to us than knowing that we might be shaping and encouraging our youth in their journey. We hope that we have affected you, as you have affected us... We are proud of you all!
