Mr Monkey was led into the auditorium on the choir circle level. He watched the stage crew arranging the stage and auditorium for the evening performance. Looking up at the ceiling Mr Monkey saw the ladder the lighting crews have to use, which is supported by a mesh more or less invisible from below. Mr Monkey would have scampered up the ladder if he'd been allowed to, but his humans were glad it wasn't part of the tour. Mr Monkey didn't count every seat, but apparently there's seating for 2341 people spread over the four levels of the auditorium.
