In this brand new musical adaptation, 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 very 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

Kids are encouraged to bring their very special stuffed animal to the show, just like Jane Goodall’s toy chimpanzee named Jubilee, so together they can experience more about the world around them. Kids will have the opportunity to learn first aid practices on their furry friend, and create a craft with Douglas County Libraries. Guests from the Denver Zoo will also be there to introduce kids to the habitat and life of today’s chimpanzee. Specialty concession items will be available for sale at the PACE Center Concessions.
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.

Considered to be the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees, Goodall is best known for her over 55-year study of social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees since she first went to Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania in 1960. She is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and the Roots & Shoots program, and she has worked extensively on conservation and animal welfare issues. She has served on the board of the Nonhuman Rights Project since its founding in 1996. In April 2002, she was named a United Nation’s Messenger of Peace.
