We produce six shows a year including the Fall Musical, Spring Play, Theatre Productions Children’s Theatre, Theatre Productions Experimental Theatre and two Junior Rebel Theatre Camps. With over 300 students participating in Theatre at Roncalli High School each year, the Theatre program has earned a reputation of excellence throughout the South side of Indianapolis.

Mr. Philip Anderson

Phillip Anderson, Theatre Director

Phillip Anderson is Roncalli’s Director of Theatre Education and believes that teaching young people how to express themselves through the arts is a very vital part of their overall education. Educational Theatre involves Science, Mathematics, Foreign Language, History, Physical Education, Business, Technology, Economics and more. Theatre is taught in schools so one will recognize beauty, be sensitive, and have more love, more compassion, and more gentleness. 

2013-2014 marks Phillip’s 16th year of teaching Theatre at Roncalli High School. Born and raised in Indianapolis, he graduated from Franklin Central High School and continued his education at Anderson University, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Education, and the University of Indianapolis, receiving a Masters of Education with an emphasis in Theatre. Phillip is a lifetime member of Alpha Psi Omega, the dramatic fraternity.
