Galileo Hannigan -- President
 

Galileo Hannigan is a rising senior at Centaurus high school in his fourth year with Centaurus Theatre Company, and he is incredibly honored to have the opportunity to serve as the president for the 2023-24 school year. Ever since he was pulled into his first show in fourth grade by a close friend, theatre has been his passion, his source of joy, and his home. He joined CTC during the fall semester of his freshman year during the height of COVID, not really knowing a single person at Centaurus, and he found a community of people that will be close to his heart for the rest of his life. As president, Leo hopes to continue to build a community of support and trust where anyone can have the opportunity to find their passion, their joy, and their community through the hard work of theatre.

When Leo is not on stage or helping with set builds, he is often hiking, biking, spending time with horses, spending time with his incredible family and support system, sailing, and of course taking math tests. Leo, to the dismay of some of his peers, quite enjoys math tests, finding them relaxing and fun. Leo has an incredible passion for many different subjects, but nowhere does he feel more at home then on the ocean while sailing. Be careful when mentioning it around him because once he starts talking about sailing, it can be hard to stop him.

Leo is so incredibly excited to work with every single person in theatre - new and returning. No matter how busy he is, he will endeavor to say ‘Hi’, answer any questions, and be a source of support. He hopes to be a friendly face that people can come to if they need support. If you ever want to reach out, you can reach him at ghannigan01@bvsd.org and he would be more than willing to listen. If you ever have any suggestions for the program, never hesitate to reach out, he always would love to hear any idea you have to offer. Leo is so excited for the opportunity to work with this amazing community, and welcomes you all in the coming year!
