A prop, formally known as (theatrical) property,[1] is an object used on stage or screen by actors during a performance or screen production.[2] In practical terms, a prop is considered to be anything movable or portable on a stage or a set, distinct from the actors, scenery, costumes, and electrical equipment.[3][4][5]
