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?'

The Little Cherub – Sydney Sportsman (Surry Hills, NSW) – 1906

The Little Cherub - Sydney Sportsman (Surry Hills, NSW) - Wednesday 28 February 1906

Theatrical Tit Bits

In “The Little Cherub,” four daughters of “Lord Sanctobury,” a sanctimonious old humbug, played by Fred Kaye, tell of the fun they would have if only they had been boys. They take a melon from the table and play football with it. Their “passing”  is quick enough to make the “All Blacks” tremble, while the final goal kicked by Miss Ray is electrifying.

Just the very daintiest moving picture in the world is Miss Ray as a pink Cupid shooting at little soldiers and sailors and belted earls strung in a row on an arch or roses, while tiny winged Lovers her through tiny glasses. Then she dances, and “O she dances such a way,” driving her team of amorini before her with a rope of roses, that the house thunders an encore at her. Chunk of enthusiasm from London “Sporting Times” notice of “The Little Cherub” – George Edwards’ latest production. “The Little Cherub,” at The Prince of Wales,’ is the most amusing musical play running in London. Our old friend Maurice Farkoa plays an amorous Rajah, and sings like a coffee-coloured archangel.
