The Kennedy Center Theater for Young Audiences on Tour Presents Me…Jane: The Dreams and Adventures of Young Jane Goodall

Wednesday, February 6 | 9:50AM & 11:20AM

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. Together, Jane and Jubilee went on outdoor adventures and observed all the miracles of nature around them. As they learned more and more on their expeditions, Jane dreamed of spending the rest of her life living with and helping animals. And one day, she would go on to do just that. 

In this brand new musical adaptation produced by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, join young Jane and her special friend as they learn about the world around them and the importance of protecting all living species. With anecdotes taken directly from Jane Goodall’s autobiography, this adaptation makes this very true story accessible for the young—and young at heart.
