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 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)

The Dollar Princess – Folkestone – 1911

 

My thanks to Nick for this copy of The Dollar Princess poster advertising the performance at the Pleasure Gardens Theare, Folkstone, Kent in 1911.  Unfortunately the poster does not name the actors but the characters, judging but the costumes are most probably Daisy, The Earl of Quorn and Harry Conder. There has been some discussion about who played the part of Daisy and it may have been Mable Russell as she was Miss Ray’s understudy for the London production.
