Riksteatern is the name of the popular "National Touring Theatre"/"National Theatre Company" in Sweden. It's the biggest theatre company on tour in Sweden and can, in one way be described as Sweden's national stage on tour. Riksteatern is financed and owned by 240 local economic associations throughout Sweden and the goal is to promote and produce quality theatre for all of Sweden, outside the city regions. Riksteatern has been on-tour all over Sweden since; the Royal Dramatic Theatre and the Cullberg Ballet, for example, tours with Riksteatern with many of their most popular productions. Riksteatern was established in 1933 by Arthur Engberg. "Not only the citizens of the capital city in Sweden should be granted the privilege of first class theatre productions. The rest of the nation has the right to claim this!" - with these words, after a long public debate, Riksteatern was given the proper state funding and support. At first Riksteatern, in the 1930s, was supposed to be the touring section of Sweden's Royal Dramatic Theatre, in an effort to reach an audience in Sweden that couldn't get the chance to visit the national stage in Stockholm.
However, in the 1940s Riksteatern was given their own ensemble, producing stage productions for Riksteatern and with the purpose to be given on-tour. In 1966 Riksteatern was corporatized with Sweden's second influential touring theatre organization Svenska Teatern and became "Svenska Riksteatern". In 1967 Riksteatern started a section for producing theatre productions for children and youth, called Unga Riks which has performed quality theatre for children for three decades, performing in schools all over Sweden at low cost on a regular bases. Since 1977 the theatre group Tyst Teater is part of Riksteatern. It's a unique group that specialize in staging theatre productions for deaf in the sign language and has become popular and sought after internationally in recent years. In 1999 "Riks Drama" was founded by Lars Norén, Sweden's leading contemporary playwright today, the section of "Riks Gästspel" for guest performances by Riksteatern abroad. Riksteatern.se
Helsingborg is a town and the seat of Helsingborg Municipality, Sweden. It had 108,334 inhabitants in 2017. Helsingborg is the centre of the northern part of western Scania. There is no formal metropolitan area, but the municipality of Helsingborg City and its neighbouring five municipalities had in spring of 2013 a population of 269 489 inhabitants at an area of 1,353 square kilometres, a population density of 200 people/km2; this makes Helsingborg the fourth largest population area in Sweden. The city is Sweden's closest point to Denmark, with the Danish city Helsingør visible on the other side of the Øresund about 4 km to the west, closer than to the city's own remoter areas. If including all population around the northern part of Øresund, as a Helsingborg-Helsingør metropolitan area, its population increases to 732 450 at an area of 2,802 square kilometres; the busy ferry route known as the HH Ferry route has through history been operated by several shipping lines. As of 2014 more than 70 car ferries departures from each harbour every day.
Following the Swedish orthography reform of 1906 many place names in Sweden got a modernized spelling. In 1912 it was decided to use the form Hälsingborg. In preparation for the local government reform. In 1971 the Hälsingborg city council proposed that the new, enlarged municipality should be spelled with an "e"; this was the decision of the Government of Sweden, effective from 1 January 1971. Historic Helsingborg, with its many old buildings, is a scenic coastal city; the buildings are a blend of old-style stone-built churches and a 600-year-old medieval fortress in the city centre, more modern commercial buildings. The streets vary from wide avenues to small alley-ways. Kullagatan, the main pedestrian shopping street in the city, was the first pedestrian shopping street in Sweden. Helsingborg is one of the oldest cities of, it has been the site of permanent settlement since 21 May 1085. Helsingborg's geographical position at the narrowest part of Øresund made it important for Denmark, at that time controlling both sides of that strait.
From 1429 Eric of Pomerania introduced the Øresundstolden, a levy on all trading vessels passing through the sound between Elsinore and Helsingborg. This was one of the main sources of income for the Danish Crown. Crossing traffic, like fishermen, were not subject to the tax, directed against the Hanseatic League; the Sound Dues helped Helsingør to flourish, some of it spilled over to Helsingborg. The northern narrow inlet to Øresund with its high coastlines made an impression on many mariners, when Kronborg was rebuilt from a fortress to a palace during the Renaissance, the area became famous. Evidence of this is William Shakespeare's Hamlet; the era of the Renaissance helped the Kingdom of Denmark, but towards the middle of the 17th century, the situation worsened. Following the Dano-Swedish War and the Treaty of Roskilde Denmark had to give up all territory on the southern Scandinavian peninsula, Helsingborg became subject to new rulers. King Charles X Gustav of Sweden landed here on 5 March 1658 to take personal possession of the Scanian lands and was met by a delegation led by the bishop of the Diocese of Lund, Peder Winstrup.
At that time the town had a population of 1,000 people. He soon attempted to erase Denmark from the map, by attacking Copenhagen but failed, died in Gothenburg soon afterwards. Not much changed for some 15 years, but when Charles XI was declared of age, the new king was unsatisfied with his former rulers, its situation on a conflict-ridden border caused problems for Helsingborg. Denmark could not hold it; the last Danish attempt to regain Scania was in 1710, when 14,000 men landed on the shores near Helsingborg. The Battle of Helsingborg was fought on the 28th of February just outside the city, badly affected, it took a long time to recover. On 20 October 1811 Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte, Marshal of France and crown prince-elect of Sweden took his first step on Swedish soil in Helsingborg on his journey from Paris to Stockholm. In World War II, Helsingborg was among the most important drop-off points for the rescue of Denmark's Jewish population during the Holocaust. Adolf Hitler had ordered that all Danish Jews were to be arrested and deported to the concentration camps on Rosh HaShanah, the Jewish New Year which fell on October 2, 1943.
When Georg Ferdinand Duckwitz, a German maritime attaché received word of the order on September 28, 1943, he shared it with political and Jewish community leaders. Using the name Elsinore Sewing Club as a cover for messages, the Danish population formed an underground railroad of sorts, moving Jews away from the watched Copenhagen docks to spots farther away Helsingør, just two miles across the Øresund from Helsingborg. Hundreds of civilians hid their fellow Danish citizens -- Jews -- in their houses, farm lofts and churches until they could board them onto Danish fishing boats, personal pleasure boats and ferry boats. In the span of three nights, Danes had smuggled over 7200 Jews and 680 non-Jews across the Øresund, to safety in Sweden, with one of the main destinations at Helsingborg. From the

Geographically the town is located at the estuary of the river Lagan in the Bay of Laholm. Laholm is one of Sweden's oldest cities, it is the oldest city in the province of Halland; the first charter was granted in the 13th century, in what was a part of Denmark and Høx Herred. The church was founded in 1225. During the wars between Sweden and Denmark in the 16th and 17th century, Laholm was burnt down several times. In 1645, as Halland became land owned by the Monarch of Sweden, the town had 330 inhabitants, growing to about 866 about hundred years later. In the middle of the 19th century the population reached the 1,000 mark, doubled in the early 20th century and reaching 3,000 around 1950; the local government reform of 1971 made the town the seat of Laholm Municipality which has over 25,000 inhabitants.
