Francene grew up in West Auckland, appearing in musicals at Playhouse Theatre from 10 to 19, then took a 17-year break when she got married and had two sons. Since 2008, she has played in Stepping Out in Waiatarua, and Steel Magnolias and other shows and in Pack of Girls at Titirangi. She returned to the Playhouse Theatre last year as Ruth in Calendar Girls, winning a best actress NAPTA award. “This is my first time performing at Ellerslie and I’m loving the experience and the people. I really hope you all enjoy this male version of Calendar Girls.”
