In San Antonio Abad, in contrast, the performance occurs (not surprisingly) during the Fiesta de San Antonio Abad. The cast and the story changes somewhat every year, so that the audience does not hear the precise same sequence. Unlike the masks of Apastepeque, which are naturalistic, the masks of San Antonio Abad are always red with blue chins, with the Moors having mustaches and beards and the Spaniards clean shaven. The different stories are written a local expert (in this town, Celio López) and always accompanied by drum and flute music. Each character on each side has a specific name and role, such as the king, the queen, the captain, ambassador, doctor, executioner, and the clown. Different characters appear in different stories. In some years, there are no king and queen, while in others, they are central characters. In decorating the costumes, the Catholics always have crucifixes on their headpieces, while the Moors have idolatrous symbols such as snakes, monkeys, or mermaids, as well as the Muslim crescent moon. In no play does either queen wear a mask, however.
