***** I have some exciting news ! There is an open casting call to play Maude in a theatrical production of Harold and Maude, I am not sure if you fit the role, but the specs are women 60-100 with stage experience, Call Rachel Klem immediately @919-698-3870 if you are interested. ******
I found a highly recommend class given by an agent in your area who has been in business for over 25 years. She has a great reputation so I feel comfortable recommending this workshop.
Show Biz 101 will be given over the weekend during the fall. Agent Jackie Pressley, of Capital Artists Inc., is the teacher and there is no better point of view than an Agent. She will cover everything from headshot and resume, who the major players are in your area, a list if Agents and Casting directors, scams to avoid, and she will advise you of legitimate classes that are right for you moving forward.
Course Fee: $150
Location: Raleigh Charter High School

Show Biz 101 given by a local Agent is the perfect start !!!
There is also a one day beginners commercial auditioning technique class on August 21st, from 6-9 pm. It is located in Durham and I am not sure if that is too far for you.
If Durham is doable, let me know and I will provide additional details.
After you take the Show Biz intro, there is a bi-weekly class with a strong reputation however it is in Winston-Salem which I believe is about 2 hours from Raleigh,
The class is from 6-8 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, open enrollment. if you feel like you want to make the trip, I will provide additional information.

Please know I researched many many classes and workshops and I found the above to be among the most reputable.
I love that you have the gumption to pursue acting again and I want to make sure you start out on the right foot.
Let's start small, build up your resume, and by Winter, you should be ready for the next step.
There is a lot more to talk about and do, but I don't want to get ahead of ourselves.
This is a strong start. Let me know your thoughts and questions.
Looking forward to your response.
