Choral and Theatre Banquet


Phillip Anderson, Theatre Director

Mr. Philip Anderson

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. 

2015-2016 marks Phillip’s 18th 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, and the International Thespian Society.
