Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Lord Roberts’s Veterans’ Relief Fund – The Music Hall and Theatre Review – Friday 3rd April 1908

EVERYTHING seems to promise well for the matinee performance at the Alhambra on April 30th in aid of Lord Roberts’s Veterans’ Relief Fund. Quite a number of leading actors and actresses have promised to take part in the programme. Among these are Misses Violet Vanbrugh, Lena Ashwell, Evie Greene, Gertie Millar, Madge Vincent, Meredith Meredro, Jean Aylwin, Gabrielle Ray, Minnie Baker, Constance Collier, who will recite “The Leaguer of Lucknow;” Miss Lily Elsie and Mr. Joseph Coyne in the waltz duet from “The Merry Widow ;”  Miss Olive May and Mr. Robert Hale in a duet from “The Girls of Gottenhurg ;” Mr. Fred Farren and Miss Topsy Sinden from the Empire ; Messrs. Arthur Bourchier, W. H. Berry, Leonard Mackay, Edmund Gwenn and Harry Lauder. In addition there will be several military episodes during the afternoon, notably a torchlight tattoo. Apart from the boxes seats are priced from five guineas to two shillings. There is such a demand for the stalls that the Committee have decided to allot in priority of application or to sell by auction. Soldiers and sailors in uniform will be admitted half-price to the cheaper parts of the house.
