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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
