Just a Giant Cinderella
In her first solo show, Martina Schabron, a.k.a. Just a Giant Cinderella, walks the fine line between dark humor and devastating tragedy to give you a glimpse of what it can mean to grow up secretly struggling with mental health issues. She takes you on a journey through her life, from growing up between two worlds and never feeling like she fit in, to battling her wicked and ever-present step-sisters, to finally breaking the mold, taking a chance on herself, and being her own damn fairy godmother. This unexpected show will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between. Contains mature language and centers on mental health topics, including suicide. Suitable for ages 18+.
Martina Schabron, a dual citizen of the USA and Switzerland, was born in California, but grew up mostly in Zurich, Switzerland. She's currently based in Toronto, Canada, fully bilingual in English (US) and Swiss German, speaks accent-free High German and has a working knowledge of Italian and French.
After obtaining an Hon BSc in Criminology and Psychology at the University of Toronto, Martina moved back to Zurich and worked in law enforcement for many years. Eventhough she discovered her passion for acting at an early age and has many years of training and onstage experience, she only started pursuing this career professionally when she moved back to Toronto at the end of 2020.
Since then she has been steadily building her resume on camera and on stage, as well as consistently working on her craft with coaches in LA, NY, Zurich and Paris. She just recently wrapped her first indie feature film as a lead actor (Invited, post-production) and is currently a cast member of "Stranger Things: The Experience" in Toronto, a production by Netflix, Fever and Mycotoo.
In her free time, Martina loves to stare at the clouds, bake up a storm, watch all the people (not in a creepy way), take long walks anywhere and everywhere, and read about whatever her newest fascination may be.
She's incredibly excited to embark on this new adventure as a solo performer and can't wait to bring her first show to the Fringe festivals in Denver and Vancouver! Be sure to follow her on Instagram for more information on current and upcoming projects and performances (@martinaschabron).
