Francine grew up in South Jersey and had no theatre experience or knowledge at all. Her early life was spent almost exclusively on a field, track or court and even played softball in college at Ohio State. That all changed in the Spring of 2018 when her youngest son, Sean, chose joining the cast of Wizard of Oz over playing on his soccer team and since then there was no turning back. He was hooked and so was the rest of the family. Theatre has provided them with so much joy in so many areas. Her son Ryan is a part of the special needs troupe, Starcatchers, and her husband, Kevin, enjoys performing with the Community Theatre. In a family of performers, Francine finds her greatest joy helping behind the scenes supporting the staff and kids. NTPA has become such an amazing blessing to their whole family and they look forward to many more years of song, dance and memory making.
Having earned a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in Political Science, Sheacy has utilized her education by working for the Texas State Legislature, the Office of the Attorney General, the United States Senate, and as an Adjunct Professor of Government at Collin College.

Sheacy is an amateur photographer who enjoys community theater (and Broadway!), traveling, cooking, reading, and wine tasting. Despite her passion for these pursuits, nothing compares to her dedication to her two daughters, Kathryn (12) and Audrey (9), and she is most often found in a supporting role for their passions, activities, and academic endeavors. Sheacy and her husband, Chris, live in Frisco and are active members of First Frisco United Methodist Church.
