Me … Jane

Me…Jane: The Dreams & Adventures of Young Jane Goodall is an original musical about Jane Goodall, renowned humanitarian, conservationist, and animal activist.

With anecdotes taken from Dr. Goodall’s autobiography, this adaptation by Patrick McDonnell (who also authored the book by the same title), makes this true story about protecting living species accessible for the young—and young at heart.
