Based on Patrick McDonnell’s Caldecott Award-winning book, this brand new musical from the Kennedy Center explores the world of young Jane Goodall and her childhood adventures in the outdoors. With her faithful companion — toy chimpanzee Jubilee — Jane learns all about the miracles of nature around her, inspiring her to spend the rest of her life living with and helping animals. With anecdotes taken directly from the famed primatologist’s autobiography, this adaptation makes this very true story accessible for the young — and young at heart.
“Fantastically entertaining. Me…Jane is a teaching moment for adults, an encouraging story for kids, and a heartening tale of the potential locked within us all, for everyone in between.”
