Dressing the stage
   Decorating the stage setting usually involved filling a box set with furnishings, wall hangings, and other items in order to create the illusion of a genuine room. However, the term is freely applied to stage decoration and also refers to arranging actors on the stage decoratively to fill the acting area.
