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?'

Gabrielle Ray – The Lancashire Evening Post – Friday 23rd July 1920

EMPIRE THEATRE, PRESTON

 

Programme for Week Commencing July 26th, 1920.

 

GABRIELLE RAY will provide the “Star” attraction at the Empire, Preston, Next Week, and the bare announcement should be sufficient to start the box office on a busy time.

There are few firmer favourites in West End Musical Comedy Circles than this charming singer-actress.

For a short spell she has been persuaded by Moss’ Empires to accept a series of variety engagements at theatres within their booking scope, and Empire patrons will welcome her appearance in this town.

MISS RAY will present a number of artistic vocal scenes, in which she will have the assistance another favourite artist in LESLIE BARKER.

Gabrielle Ray – Salon of Fragrance and Fair Women – The Daily Mirror – Wednesday 22nd March 1911

ACTRESSES TO HELP HOSPITAL.

 

 Salon of Fragrance and Fair Women During All British Shopping Week.

 

One of the most interesting features of the all British shopping week will be a novel appeal to the public to help the Middlesex Hospital, for which Prince Alexander of Teck is carrying on the work upon which his brother, the late Prince Francis, was engaged at the time of his death.

Under Prince Alexander’s patronage, Miss Gertrude Robins has organised a committee of the most beautiful and popular London actresses to sell in aid of the hospital British made eau de Cologne in a “salon of fragrance and fair women” placed at their disposal by Messrs. Harrods. The scent will be supplied free by the makers, Messrs. Luce, of Southampton.

Among the ladies who have offered their services are Miss Maud Allan, the classical dancer; Miss Lilian Braithwaite, Miss Pauline Chase, beloved of Peter Pan lovers; Miss Ivy Lilian Close, Miss Phyllis Dare, Miss Marie Lohr, Miss Lillah McCarthy, and Miss Gabrielle Ray.
