Some kind of joke

Last week my sister came to visit. She happened to arrive on the night that the Chusclan community theater was performing their latest production. It was apparently a comedy, though they were eliciting few laughs from the audience. The two characters pictured in the photo below represented the Captain of a ship to the New World and his erratic first mate. Eventually, the residents of Chusclan (which is NOT a port city) answer the call. We didn't stick around for the exciting conclusion.

Both characters wore masks with long comedic noses. It actually reminded me of the Feast of Fools scene from Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame. I think this is a traditional theater form.
