Join a great adventure with the young girl who grew up to become Dr. Jane Goodall, the world-renowned primatologist and anthropologist. This new musical introduces eight-year-old Jane in her small town in 1940s England, where she’s most likely to be found climbing trees with her stuffed monkey, Jubilee, taking notes about animals, and making drawings in her notebook. Almost everyone believes her dream to travel to Africa is impossible, but she never loses heart. With anecdotes taken directly from Dr. Goodall’s autobiography, this adaptation makes the true story accessible for the very young—and young at heart.
