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 – Leslie Barker – The East Kent Times and Mail – Wednesday 7th July 1920



A packed house the first crowded audience since the spell of fine weather came in – gave a rousing welcome to Miss Gabrielle Ray, on Monday night. This famous musical-comedy star is appearing this week in dainty and artistic scenes, assisted by Leslie Barker and a company of delightful children. Her numbers are an unqualified success. In the programme are some other turns of marked excellence. Hurman, the hoop and club juggler, gives a good show; Tina Paynola, a clever lady mimic of instruments, animals, and particularly of a child and tiny baby, was vociferously applauded; Elsie Gregory displays versatility as a pianist, violinist, singer and dancer, and evoked great enthusiasm. Another particularly taking number is Harry Shirley, supported by May Ransoms in a cameo sketch “Eight c’clock,” and a meritorious performance is presented by Avis and Sails, a vocal camouflaged duo, in which the man takes the part of the woman and the woman sings like a man with bewildering rapidity. Other items are Fagan, the card manipulator, and The Sisters Weston, comedy cyclists. Next week: “Three Wise Fools.”
