On the morning of Thursday, June 3, Houston Educators were treated to a bit of Saudi commerce as they visited Al-Rashid Mall in Al-Khobar. They were all waiting at the front door of Eastern Jewelry at 8:50 for the doors to open. After much looking, bargaining and purchasing, they left the shop with at least 20 name necklaces, numerous earrings, bangles and chains. They continued around the mall, stopping at the Silver Museum, Jarir Bookstore, Middle East artifact stores and of course Starbuck’s Coffee.

For some days, I have watched the debate on Saudi resources set off by Matt Simmons with amusement - the kind of amusement one feels when listening to discussions about economics in a small-town barber shop. But now, since some seem to be taking the concerns voiced by Simmons and his followers (e.g. Morse) seriously, I feel compelled to comment.

Patsy Inglet didn’t dance in the original production of 5-6-7-8!, but she was an important part of it nevertheless. Patsy had just started dance classes with me (in the old Library Annex) at the urging of her friend, Norma Ackert, but shortly after she began, her husband, Tom, was given an assignment to Tokyo.

Stars of 5678! Then and Now

BY Nancy Ackerman / /

The huge cast of 5-6-7-8! was a treasure of talent…upstage, downstage and backstage. And many of the original performers and crew from the 1985 production not only stayed on for the many productions that followed, but honed their talents even further when they departed Aramco.

5678! Productions, Still Dancin'

BY Aramco ExPats / /

From 1985 to 1992 DTG audiences were treated to a bit of Broadway on the Dhahran stage, when the 5678! productions danced and sang their way to sold-out performances at every run. The enormous talent in the Aramco community was showcased in these lavish productions that brought glitter and glam to our desert outpost. Those were great times!
