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?'

HIS ASSOCIATION WITH LEADING ARTISTS

A RETURN VISIT TO BURTON.

GAVE GABRIELLE RAY HER FIRST PART.

 

Not a few artists who have achieved fame owe to Mr. Phillips their first real start in the profession. It was he who, at Richmond in “Little Red Riding Hood,” some 20 years ago, gave Gabrielle Ray her first speaking part. The present Marchioness of Headfort, as Miss Rosie Boote, was a member of his “Boy Blue” company about 21years ago; and other prominent people with whom he has been intimately associated are Mr. Dan Crawley, Mr. Huntley Wright, Mr. Bettie Wright, Mr. Will Bishop, the Selbini troupe, the Craggs, the Tribune Trio, Mr. O. B. Clarence, Miss Florrie Ford, Miss Jessie Preston, Miss Queenie Leighton, Miss Billie Barlow, Miss Gertie Gitana, and Miss Eileen Douglas.

It is satisfactory to learn that the bookings during the week at Burton have very good. Mr. Phillips introduced a novelty so far as the local theatre is concerned, of a Wednesday matinee – a departure which has proved eminently successful, while few seats are available for to-morrow.
