    Are there any local plays you can audition for? That's a start, then if you have the opportunity to take acting classes that would also be a good thing. Maybe even buy some books on acting techniques so you can study in your free time.

    Once you have done some local plays,maybe a few poetry reading to get infornt of an audience too. also try to do some student films in your area and then look for an agent...
