STAGE BEAUTY RETURNS.

MISS GABRIELLE RAY ENGAGED FOR PANTOMIME.

 

Miss Gabrielle Ray, the noted musical comedy beauty, who has been absent from the stage for several years past, is to return. She has chosen to do way pantomime, and has accepted an engagement as principal girl at the Prince’s Theatre, Bradford, at Christmas.

Miss Ray was married, under romantic circumstances, on March 1, 1912, at Windsor, Mr. Eric Raymond Loder, son of the late Mr. Alfred Loder, and grandson of the late Sir Robert Loder Bart.

The marriage, however, though first happy, ended the Divorce Court July of following year, when Mrs. Loder, petitioning for a restitution of conjugal rights, disclosed that her husband had left her the January previous, and had returned no answer to her appeals that he should come hack.

Miss Gabrielle Ray, now about 34 years old, was one of the most noted of “picture post card beauties.” It is said of her that she is one of the comparatively few actresses who never on any occasion resort to the make-up box except for stage purposes. We understand that Mr. Francis Laidler is to pay her a very high salary for the Bradford engagement.

Mr. Laidler says the lady is “more beautiful than ever,” and his troupe of pantomime children, of whom the lady had heard helped influence her to come to Bradford.
