In a bankrupt town, not so far away or long ago from our own, the corrupt Mayoress and her City Council concoct a fake miracle to draw in tourists. BUT they get more than they bargained for when Nurse Fay Apple brings the inmates from the local insane asylum, The Cookie Jar, to partake of the miraculous waters. After the Cookies escape and mingle with the regular folks of the town, who can sort them out? Enter Dr. J. Bowden Hapgood, our hero! In a place where miracles may be real and the most insane could be the sanest of all… NOTHING is what it seems. A biting social satire, a triumph of absurdist theatre, and a cult classic musical, Stephen Sondheim’s ANYONE CAN WHISTLE is being presented by the NOCCA Musical Theatre Department for the first time in New Orleans!
