Folk och rövare i Kamomilla stad

Today it was time for a yearly summer tradition of ours, to go and see the local amateur theater group 'Charlies Teater' in town. Every summer they put up a new play, this year it was "Folk och rövare i Kamomilla stad". It's only on for three weekends and is always a really popular activity in the otherwise rather sleepy town during the holiday period; so this year we booked our tickets in advance to be sure we would get seats!

We were lucky with the weather, it was dry and sunny. But we were grateful they had organized blankets to lend the audience, as the wind made it a bit chilly as the show went on! Swedish summer for you.

And there was fika!

This story is originally a 1955 Norwegian childrens book by T. Egner, which in English is called 'When the Robbers Came to Cardamom Town'. It tells the story of Cardamom Town, with the main characters being three robbers. It is considered as one of the most important Norwegian children's books. 

This theater group 'Charlies Teater' started these summer performances in 2008, and have since put on one childrens play and one adult play each summer. We didn't go in 2008, but we've been every year after that - making this the sixth summer in a row for us! Such a lovely tradition!
