Star Magic launches US tour

AS PART of its 30th anniversary, Star Magic, the talent agency owned by ABS-CBN Corporation, is touring a concert titled Star Magic 30: Beyond the Stars in the United States in August.

In 1992, then Executive Vice-President and General Manager for ABS-CBN Freddie M. Garcia, together with then Program Director Johnny Manahan, established a center that would develop talents exclusively for the network’s programs. Ang TV, an afternoon youth show launched in the same year, was the center’s first project.

In the last three decades, the talent agency, which was renamed Star Magic, has provided workshops in acting, dance, art, script appreciation, styling, and voice production. Star Magic alumni include Angelica Panganiban, John Lloyd Cruz, Kim Chiu, JC De Vera, Jed Madela, Sarah Geronimo, Maja Salvador, and Liza Soberano.

“As mandate of Star Magic, we continue to develop, groom, and train new artists, and bring them to a certain level of excellence, to a level that we are proud of, and to a level of international caliber,” ABS-CBN head of TV production and Star Magic Laurenti M. Dyogi said in an online press conference on June 30.

“We’re honored to be celebrating three shows in the east and the west coast. We’re excited to bring the new breed of talents to the United States and hopefully, to the rest of the world,” Mr. Dyogi said.

Star Magic 30: Beyond the Stars will feature performances by artists including Ms. Chiu, Zanjoe Marudo, Andrea Brillantes, Carlo Aquino, Maymay Entrata, Charlie Dizon, Edward Barber, Donny Pangilinan, Alexa Ilacad, Belle Mariano, KD Estrada, Maris Racal, and Gigi De Lana.

The show schedules are: Aug. 6 at the Kings Theater, Brooklyn, New York; Aug. 12 at the Warfield Theater, San Francisco; and Aug. 14 at the Saban Theatre, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.

“Kaya tayo magkakasama dito ay para mabuo iyung bonding at iyung pagiging magkapatid sa Star Magic (The reason we are together is to develop our bond and brotherhood/sisterhood in Star Magic),” Mr. Marudo said.

To kick off the tour, a concert titled Beyond the Stars will be held at the Newport Performing Arts center on July 23, 8 p.m.
