German translation:Erstes Bühnenbild: 1'1" Hintergrund
Explanation:
US is the abbreviation for Upstage(German: Hintergrund)
Upstage (us)- the area of the stage away from the house.
I would translate plaster line with Stucklinie- but cannot back this up with any relevant google findings.
Maybe the definitions in this glossary help you along!

The Plaster line is an imaginary line running from the upstage corner of a vertical member of the prosc. Arch across stage to the opposite vertical member. Used in measuring locations onstage.

Centerline- the imaginary line running perpendicular to the plaster line and centered in the prosc. Arch. Used in
measuring locations onstage.
