Star Magic, on Tuesday, announced that they will be adding two new programs to the annual Star Magic Workshops this summer – a Conversational Tagalog Class for Non Tagalog Speakers for anyone who wish to improve their Tagalog proficiency, and the Artist Registry, where Star Magic workshop attendees with enough training will be given exclusive access to acting opportunities within various Kapamilya programs.

“We want to reintroduce to the public that we are number one in the Philippines in terms of training for the performance arts such as acting, voice and dance,” said director-scriptwriter and Star Magic Workshop head Rahyan Carlos. “In fact, we have recorded a total of 1,400 enrollees last year alone.”

And with this opening of new doors to an improved craft, 2019 holds the same promise for the Star Magic Workshops, if not more.


“I have a kick-ass team. Meaning I have the best in the world team, hinandpick ko po sila kasi I can’t do it by myself,” said Rahyan on what sets the Star Magic Workshops apart. “But, we have constant training – kung ano po ‘yung natututunan ko, kung ano ‘yung natututunan nila, symbiotic process po kami. We will share expertise to one another, kung ano ba ‘yung bago ngayon.”

“Because the creative arts is evolving, and I believe that acting and performing arts is a lifestyle of learning. So, you’re just as good as your last work. Even us, we keep on updating ourselves,” he added.


Actor Christian Bables, who were among the artists to have previously trained under Rahyan’s wing, could attest to the competency of these workshops. After all, it is through his training with Star Magic that the Halik star has found his big break in showbiz.

“From 2011, up until ngayon, magma-Masterclass ulit ako. Continuous learning lang, at masasabi kong talagang lahat ng nagagamit ko ngayong weapon sa trabaho, dito galing sa Star Magic Workshops,” he said.

“[Before], ang laki ng wall ko talaga. Kumbaga, takot ako to face life. But, nung nagsimula akong mag-workshops kay Direk Rahyan, hindi ko lang nagamay pa ‘yung passion ko, kung hindi naging matapang ako to win over life,” he added.

Registration for the 2019 Star Magic Workshops starts on March 16 and 17. For inquiries and enlistment, call ABS-CBN Star Magic at 415-2272 local 5142, 5243, and 5244 or Star Magic Workshops’ Facebook page or email at starmagicworkshops@abs-cbn.com.
