Before she was a renowned humanitarian, conservationist and animal activist, Dr. Jane Goodall was a little girl with a treasured toy chimpanzee named Jubilee. Together, Jane and Jubilee went on outdoor adventures and observed all the miracles of nature around them. The more Jane learned on their expeditions, the more she dreamed of spending the rest of her life living with and helping animals. One day, that dream would become a reality.

Join Jane and her special friend in this brand new musical adaptation that will have you dancing in your seat! “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.” (DC Metro Theater Arts) With anecdotes taken directly from Jane Goodall’s autobiography, this poignant production of a very true story is perfect for the young—and young at heart. Get yourself and your whole family to the Forbes Center before this show swings away!  https://shawentertainment.com/kennedy-center-jane
