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 Casino Girl – Folkestone Express, Sandgate, Shorncliffe & Hythe Advertiser – Saturday 4th April 1903

PLEASURE GARDENS THEATRE.

 “THE CASINO GIRL.”

 

This bright musical comedy made its re-appearance at the Theatre on Monday evening, and was enthusiastically received. It seemed almost like “the season” to see a well-filled house and such an excellent company in one of the great musical successes. Mr. Norman Page, formerly the “polite lunatic” of “The Belle of New York” plays the similar part of the “Pasha.” Mr. Stanley White brings out all the humours of “Signor Hasbeern,” and Mr. Frank Saker and Mr. Walter Freear cause much amusement as the two robbers. Of the ladies, Miss Daisy Semon as “Laura Lee” and Miss Gabrielle Ray as “Dolly Twinkle,” are full of vivacity, and are well supported by the lengthy cast. The chorus works well, and the whole production goes with a “bang.” The last performances are on Wednesday at 2.30 and 8.

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.
