Star Drama Theater Presents was an ABS-CBN Saturday program which featured a mix of veteran and upcoming stars from the Philippine entertainment industry from January 16, 1993 to September 8, 2001. The weekly program featured an actor for thirteen week season.[1]

Various actors and actresses from Philippine Movies and TV get a special line up in this anthology with different stars in each month. The first featured star was Nora Aunor who was contracted to appear for one season.[2] Her stint was billed as a "TV comeback" after a brief hiatus. She and ex-husband Christopher De Leon did a notable episode which highly rated during its initial telecast. After a 2-season stint of "Nora" the anthology moved on to featuring various stars ranging from award-winning actresses such as Elizabeth Oropesa, Dawn Zulueta, Lorna Tolentino; to younger actresses Aiko Melendez, Manilyn Reynes, Sheryl Cruz, Judy Ann Santos and Jolina Magdangal; and on the last years of the show it served as a venue for actors and actresses signed with Star Magic to showcase their thespic abilities.

This series is currently streaming on Jeepney TV YouTube Channel every last quarter of the month, 5:00 pm.
