The Maui Arts & Cultural Center will present a one time theater piece, Nogales: Storytellers in Cartel Country, that reflects today’s political and social environment.

The backdrop of the performance focuses on the victimization of an innocent teenage bystander set in the middle of tensions along the U.S./Mexico border.

The show is a MACC exclusive on Maui with no other performances in Hawaiʻi and will take place on Thursday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the McCoy Studio Theater.

Nogales uses original and researched text, created video and short film, set against scenic art installations. At its core is the tragic and true story of a Nogales boy, shot in the back 15 times by a U.S. Border patrol officer.


The show traces the bullets beyond the headlines, borders and politics to explore the true lives and real people from the dangerous shadowlands to the powerful circle of infamous Arizona sherriff Joe Arpaio.

Tickets are $28 plus applicable fees and available at the MACC Box Office, by phone at 242-SHOW or online at
