Before she became a renowned humanitarian, conservationist, and animal activist, Dr. Jane Goodall was a little girl with a special toy chimpanzee named Jubilee. Together, Jane and Jubilee discover the miracles of nature on their shared outdoor adventures, and young Jane imagines spending the rest of her life helping animals in Africa. Later, she will do just that!  In this 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.
