Those cast members were given first refusal to their roles and there are some roles that need to be recast. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a one-man show that has come to us as a special project and already cast. The Secret Agency and Pip-squeak are shows that we are presenting and not casting. There will be additional auditions later in the season for specialty projects.
