The audience has spoken.

And Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera is ready to give them what they want.

Four of the six musicals scheduled for the 2014 summer season — “Spamalot,” “Singin' in the Rain,” “Footloose” and “Legally Blonde The Musical” — were among the top 10 picks in the company's annual audience survey.

Those four shows will be produced by Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera along with “Footloose,” which the company is staging for the first time.

Also on the schedule is the national touring production of the recent Broadway revival of “Evita,” choreographed by Point Park University alumnus Rob Ashford.

The summer season schedule is:

• “Singin' in the Rain,” May 30 to June 8

• “Legally Blonde The Musical,” June 13 to 22

• “Footloose,” June 24 to 29

• “Evita,” July 8 to 13

• “Cats,” July 18 to 27

• “Monty Python's Spamalot,” July 29 to Aug. 3

Season ticket packages are now on sale, with six-show packages ranging in price from $60 to $365. Prices for single tickets will be available when tickets go on sale in mid-April 2014.
