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 Orchid – Daily Telegraph & Courier (London) – Tuesday 27th October 1903

Dresses in “The Orchid”

Miss Gabrielle Ray wears in the first act a grey sun pleated dress, finished with a wide ruche round the hem, and a deep early Victorian cape of Trish lace, almost to the waist. Her wide-brimmed hat is of gauged chiffon. Later she wears a charming turquoise-blue costume, in somewhat of the old style of ballet-skirt, but more graceful in that layer after layer of the ethereal yet soft fabric is edged with undulating masses of ruching. The bodice is cut low, and there are trellis sleeves of blue velvet, into which pink-fringed daisies are tied. A band of trellis and daisies falls on the skirt below the waist. The hat is basket shaped, and of daisies embedded in soft blue chiffon, closely gauged, the brim lined in front with chiffon of a paler shade. Again, Miss Ray wears a dancing dress all in red, with effective touches of black.

Gabrielle Ray – The Orchid – The Tatler – Wednesday 11th November 1903

A Charming Dancer. –  Miss Gabrielle Ray as Thisbe at the new Gaiety gives promise of qualifying to win a place in the long roll of famous dancers. She has been five years in musical comedy, having made a beginning as Mamie Clancy in The Belle of New York with a company toured by Mr. Ben Greet. Then followed two years in his Casino Girl company as Dolly Twinkle, the part originated it the Shaftesbury by Miss Marie George. Four years previous to her engagement by Mr. Ben Greet Miss Ray had appeared as a child actress in a drama called Proof at the Elephant and Castle, and several pantomime parts in the provinces followed. A year ago she went to the Gaiety to under study Miss Gertie Millar in The Toreador, and from there went to the Apollo, where she has played Miss Letty Lind’s and Miss Ella Snyder’s parts without suffering by comparison. Miss Ray is neither French nor American as is surmised but comes from Lancashire.
