June 24: Children’s Theater at Munkholmen

Nora and I went out on a theater date  to see Mio, Min Mio (an Astrid Lindgren story) at Munkholmen. We took the bus downtown, then a ferry to Munkholmen island in the Trondheim fjord to see the play by a local children’s theater.

The old stone building was a unique setting, and sitting on the hard wooden benches for 2 hours brought to mind the experience of the monks in the olden days (oi). The production was fun and it was a full house–and guess what? Nora wants to perform this play too!

At intermission, we went outside to explore the grounds. Nora found the ledge around the tower, along with the rest of the kids. But she spent most of her time perfecting her superhero jump off a low wall. The weather was cool and cloudy, but at least it wasn’t raining on us. Back to town on the ferry for a late falafel fix, and a slow bus home in the only traffic jam I have seen in Trondheim as the Rosenberg soccer game finished. It was a sweet date night for the girls 🙂
