Front Settings: The furthest downstage, and usually most decorative, of the stage curtains. Usually made up of the Front Curtain and Main Valance.

Main Valance: Horizontal curtain that hangs farthest downstage (usually in front of the Front Curtain) and hides the ceiling and rigging materials from the audience.
