About the Show
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.
“The idea of bringing Me…Jane to the stage is very exciting. 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
