“I love the book, and I am sure that the live action will inspire children of all ages to pursue their dreams and to realize if Jane did it, they can do it, too.”
— JANE GOODALL

Before she was a renowned humanitarian, conservationist, and animal activist, Dr. Jane Goodall was a little girl with a very special toy chimpanzee named Jubilee. In Me…Jane, Jane and Jubilee go on outdoor adventures and explore all the miracles of nature around them. As they learn more and more on their expeditions, Jane dreams of spending the rest of her life living with and helping animals.

From the highly-acclaimed Kennedy Center Theater for Young Audiences, which brought Elephant and Piggie’s: We Are in a Play! in 2017, this brand new musical adaptation of Me…Jane highlights the importance of learning about the natural world and protecting all living species. With anecdotes taken directly from Jane Goodall’s autobiography, this delightful performance makes her inspiring and true story accessible for the entire audience.
