Stage 1: The StarStruck Playhouse was an offshoot of StarStruck's first season.

The finalists were assigned to act in a drama episode that would air for the whole week.

Stage 1: The StarStruck Playhouse's Friday episodes aired for an hour, with its first 15 minutes airing the last part of the week's drama episode.

The next 45 minutes were dedicated to a live show called Stage 1: Live!, where the finalists performed song and dance numbers.

YASMIEN KURDI'S SHOWBIZ JOURNEY

The first season of StarStruck was Yasmien's ticket to showbiz.

After placing First Princess to Female Ultimate Survivor Jennylyn Mercado in 2003, she was groomed to become a drama actress, first playing support roles in TV shows like Joyride (2004) and Encantadia (2005).

In 2006, Yasmien bagged major roles in two musical-themed drama shows: Now and Forever presents Tinig and Bakekang.

Her role as Charming in Bakekang became popular during the show's run that GMA-7 immediately assigned her to lead the afternoon series Sine Novela presents Pati Ba Pintig ng Puso? in 2007, together with JC de Vera.

The success of Pati Ba Pintig ng Puso? allowed Yasmien and JC to top-bill two more shows: Pasan Ko Ang Daigdig and Babangon Ako't Dudurugin Kita.

This was followed by more lead roles in afternoon and prime-time shows, until she temporarily took a break from showbiz in 2012, to focus on her family life.

In 2013, she returned to acting via the prime-time remake of the '90s series Anna Karenina.

In 2014, Yasmien returned to the GMA afternoon block to lead the teleseryes Yagit (2014-2015), Sa Piling Ni Nanay (2016-2017), and Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka (2018).

Her latest teleserye was the morning drama, Hiram na Anak, which aired from February to May 2019.
