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 Little Cherub – 1906

Wit and Humour

(From “Punch”)

 

It is indeed a pleasure to see the drama at last emerging from the state of sluggish insipidity which has so long diagnosed it. At the Prince of Wales’ Theatre four of our most lovely actresses now play a game of football on the stage, in the course of which Miss Gabrielle Ray kicks the ball into the auditorium. We doubt whether this theatrical history of any country could point to a more saucy incident.

Actress as Footballer.

 

During the run of “The Little Cherub” at the Prince of Wales’s Theatre, London, Miss Gabrielle Ray has so often kicked the improvised football in the hotel scene into the “prompt” box, that she has accepted a challenge, and prepared back herself for £5 to land the ball into that box on any occasion.

The sender wrote the details of the performance, “The Little Cherub” they saw on 26th March 1906 and the Prince of Wales’ Theatre and The Morning Post – Monday 26th March 1906 shows the principle cast members.

As the card has been signed by Miss Ray it suggests that the sender may have asked for her autograph at the end of the show.

A Girl on Stage – Sheffield Daily Telegraph – Monday 7th May 1906

A Girl on Stage - Sheffield Daily Telegraph - Monday 7th May 1906

Mr. George Edwardes’s Wise Move.

This contretemps had, if anything, the effect of giving a sympathetic touch to the great favour with which the new piece, based on the old, was received last night. “The Girl on the Stage,” though it is nothing to gush over, is a decided improvement in taste and refinement on its predecessor. The characters remain much the same, but the songs, a good deal of the dialogue, and much of the business are different. The vocal hit of the present performance is made by Miss Gabrielle Ray, who, in “Merry-go-Round,” by a new composer, Mr. Jerome D. Kern, simply captivates the house. Miss Zena Dare is pretty, too, especially as a Pierrot in a wonderful scene in which rose-pink Pierrettes are grouped in lavish and beautiful profusion.
