The last time you asked your kiddos what they wanted to be when they grow up, veterinarian and zookeeper ranked high on the list.

They’ll smile the whole way through Me…Jane: The Dreams & Adventures of Young Jane Goodall. The musical follows the trailblazer as she frolics with squirrels in her English backyard and convenes with chimpanzees in Africa. Best of all, they’ll see the gutsy heroine defy expectations and chart her own course, proving there’s nothing wild about following your dreams.

Tickets start at $15. Showing Oct. 19–Nov. 17, Sat., 2 p.m. & 5 p.m. and Sun., 11 a.m. & 2 p.m. at the Newmark Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway, Portland, Oregon.
