Gabrielle Ray – The Little Cherub – The Weekly Journal (Hartlepool) – Friday 30th March 1906

The management of the Prince of Wales’s Theatre, London, writes that during the run of “The Little Cherub” at the Prince of Wales’s Theatre, which is now approaching it’s 100th performance, Miss Gabrielle Ray has so often kicked the improvised football in the hotel scene into the “prompt” box – which has been christened by patrons of the theatre “the football box” – that she has accepted a joking challenge, and is prepared to back herself to the extent of a £5 note to land the ball into that box on any occasion.

Gabrielle Ray – The Dollar Princess – Daily Record – Monday 3rd January 1910

A COINCIDENCE.

 

A strange coincidence in connection with the visit of the successful musical play, “The Dollar Princess,” now running at the King’s Theatre, Glasgow, is that on Saturday last, January 1, it was the birthday of Mabel Russell and Miss Gabrielle Ray, who are both playing the part of Daisy in Glasgow and London respectively; also it was the birthday of Miss Clara Evelyn, who is playing the title role in Glasgow.

(The information published by the Daily Record was incorrect, Mabel Russell was born on 1st January 1887 and Clara Evelyn was born on 1st January 1881, however Miss Ray was born on 28th April 1883 and not 1st January as published)

Gabrielle Ray – The Lady Dandies – The Weekly Journal (Hartlepool) – Friday 19th April 1907

Stage & the Drama

 

It is interesting to learn that Mr George Graves, who has returned from America, is to find a in the cast of “The Gay Widow” when that piece succeeds “The Lady Dandies” at Daly’s Theatre. Mr Graves, who had his first chance in London in “The School Girl” four or five years ago, has since won for himself a considerable popularity, first by his humorous reading of the part of Coquenard in “Veronique,” and later as a most diverting General Des Ifs in “The Little Michus.” Plans are being made for sending “The Lady Dandies” on tour, with many of the original company, including Miss Evie Greene, Miss Demise Orme, and Miss Gabrielle Ray. The piece, however, is still proving attractive at Daly’s Theatre.

Gabrielle Ray – Lady Madcap – The Weekly Journal (Hartlepool) – Friday 3rd November 1905

 

Lady Madcap” at the Prince of Wales’s Theatre it still drawing such excellently large audiences that Mr Owen Hall’s new comedy, “The Little Cherub,” will probably not be needed before January – if then. But preparations for the new piece are well under weigh. The Cast will include Mr Lennox Pawle – who is making steady progress in his new milieu –  is to succeed Mr G. P. Huntley in “Lady Madcap” when the latter is required for “Mr Popple”; Miss Zena Dare, Miss Gabrielle Ray, and Mr Farkon. Mr Owen Hall has recently reconstructed the scheme of his piece, which now makes provision for what he calls “Willie Edouin” and “Ethel Irving” characters. In his own words, moreover, the new scheme contemplates “fewer women and more girls.”

Gabrielle Ray – Betty – The London Daily News – Saturday 30th October 1915

MISS GABRIELLE RAY.

 

Those who have not yet seen “Betty,” or intend to see it again, may rest assured that the alterations in the east, made by the musical play to be produced the Adelphi Theatre, have not detracted from the sprightliness and humour of the piece.

Mr. Lauri de Frece, whose methods are in direct contrast with Mr. W H. Berry’s, is a most entertaining Achille Jotte. That Court dressmaker’s head model is now played by Miss Gabrielle Ray, who dances as gracefully as ever. The audience at Daly’s Theatre last night gave her a great welcome on her return to the stage. There are some other alterations in the cast, the most noticeable being Mr. Tom Wallis in Mr. G. P. Huntley’s old part.

It is very easy to imitate Mr. Huntley but difficult to follow him; but Mr. Wallis was successful. Several additions to piece have been made to its advantage. Miss Winifred Barnes is still the Betty, and is more charming than ever. An animated Greuze, she sings as prettily as she dances.
