He made his local acting debut in Feb 2004 in the play Polk County at the Paul Robeson Theatre under the direction of June L Saunders-Duell. His first theatre mentor Paulette Harris motivated him to step out on faith and enter an original comedic monologue he wrote into the Stage Reading Workshop at the National Black Theatre Festival in North Carolina, which got selected to have a reading at the Festival. This monologue became his first and to date most successful original stage play "The Call" which was witnessed by over 800 people in its weekend debut in March 2007 at the Buffalo Science Museum Auditorium. His other theatrical roles include "Ruined" at Ujima Theatre under the direction of another of his mentor’s Lorna Hill, "Raisin in the Sun" at Subversive Theatre, "Last Days of Judas Iscariot" at Road Less Traveled, touring pieces and reenactments with Alafia Theatre, Motherland Connextions and Research Foundation of Buffalo State College just to name a few.

His company along with Xavier Films in cooperation with Ujima Company co-produced the play "Zooman and the Sign" in 2011, directed by Phil's long-time theater mentor Willie Judson, which was extended due to popular demand.
