Spring has sprung (finally!), and the Boston arts scene has exploded with a wealth of new shows, plays, and other experiences. As luck would have it, some great opportunities have blossomed to enjoy the spring bonanza at considerable savings.

How considerable? How about half-price tickets to "Luminocity," the new production from the Big Apple Circus (continuing through May 11, 2014, under the big top at City Hall Plaza in Boston), Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, based on the popular Newbery-honored children's book, at the Wheelock Family Theatre in Boston from April 11 to May 11, 2014, or Jim Henson's Sid the Science Kid on May 11, 2014, at the Wilbur Theatre in Boston?

To get those and dozens of other money-saving, family-friendly deals, head to the Get ARTventurous site presented by ArtsBoston. The spring promotion is great for local families whose children will be off for April school vacation as well as visiting families who will be in town for spring break or an Easter getaway. As a bonus, the non-profit ArtsBoston reinvests the funds generated from ticket sales back into the arts. It's a win-win.

Families aren't the only ones who can enjoy the arts without breaking the bank. BosTix is another resource for special offers on all kinds of shows, including ones geared to older audiences. For example, you could score some great discounts on tickets to the play, Rich Girl, continuing through April 26, 2014, at The Lyric Stage Company in Boston or a performance by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater on May 1 to 4, 2014 at Boston's Citi Wang Theatre.

Get cracking. Spring is fleeting, and so is the limited availability of these special ticket deals.
