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?'

In addition to Miss Alice O’Brien, who has taken up the title role in “The Dollar Princess,” at Daly’s, to allow Miss Lily Elsie to enjoy a holiday, other changes should be noted. Miss Mabel Russell has succeeded Miss Gabrielle Ray, who has gone to America, and Miss Elizabeth Firth has replaced Miss Emmy Wehlen. Bristolians will be delighted to hear that Miss Russell has therefore quite recovered from her attack of typhoid fever.

If Miss Gabrielle Ray visits Bristol with Miss Evie Greene, in “The Lady Dandies,” it will not, as many suppose, be her first appearance at the Prince’s Theatre. Some years ago she was here in the “Casino Girl,” but it was only a small part. Miss Isa Bowman appeared in the title role. Always a clever dancer, Miss Ray has risen rapidly since then, and, favoured with a pretty face, has come to stay.

Miss Gabrielle Ray will not, I believe, appear in “The Lady Dandies” here. I have heard that she does not like touring; at any rate, she has not joined Mr. George Edwardes company yet in the provinces. The fact, however that Evie Greene, Mr. Eric Thorne, Mr. T. Grove, and Miss Mabel Russell, who is booked for the Prime’s Theatre at Christmas, are in the cast, and takes in a graceful and chic manner the part of Egle, will undoubtedly fill the houses.
