Deciding that the good people of Sderot need a barrage of positive reinforcement rather than missiles and mortars, the Cameri Theater grabbed some of its best people, took them off to work with some more good people at the Sderot Community Center, and the result is the joint Cameri/Sderot production of Ephraim Kishon's ever-popular musical, Salah Shabati. Itzik Cohen is the incomparable Salah, the ingenuously inventive immigrant through whom Kishon pokes fun at the transit camps, the officials and Israel of the 1950s. Sharon Elimelech, Ohad Yehuda'i and other Cameri actors take the leads; the rest of the cast is made of Sderot residents. Rehearsals continued at the community center over most of the past year - Kassams or no Kassams. Shows are at the Sderot Community Center at 8:30 p.m. on June 25 and 26. Tickets are a mere NIS 10: (08) 661-1555.
