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 Eckington, Woodhouse and Staveley Express – Saturday 26th June 1920

 

SHEFFIELD HIPPODROME.

 One of the best given at the Sheffield Hippodrome for a long time past is there this week. A novel turn is that given by Milton Hayes. Gabrielle Ray, a comedy star, was given a very cordial reception, her appearance with her eight little acolytes being exceedingly pretty. The Westminster Singers were a distinct success, and M’lita  Dolores was a charming dancer.

Gabrielle Ray – The Penistone, Stocksbridge and Hoyland Express – Saturday 9th April 1921

SHEFFIELD HIPPODROME.

 

The programme at the Sheffield Hippodrome this week is a capital one. The chief attraction is the popular London musical comedy star, Miss Gabrielle Ray, who fully maintains her reputation as a danseuse and vocalist. Particularly charming was her crinoline song, in which she was assisted by eight very capable small children. Mr. Leslie Barker is Miss Ray’s partner, and his work is equally good. The programme also includes Hilda Nelson, with gems of melody; Chinko and Kaufman, in some good juggling and trick cycling; Gus Harris, a versatile character comedian; the “Three Scamps” and a piano, another good light comedy turn; “Main Steppers” (dancers), and Harry Gunn, comedian.

Gabrielle Ray / Leslie Barker – The Penistone, Stocksbridge and Hoyland Express – Saturday 19th June 1920

 

SHEFFIELD HIPPODROME.

Gabrielle Ray, long a idol of the Gaiety under the George Edwardes regime, is to visit the Hippodrome next week, in a series of artistic musical scenes. A group of dainty child artistes and Leslie Barker are Ray’s able support. For years Miss Ray has been a picture postcard best seller, and her good looks are still the envy and despair of the fair sex. The famous Westminster Singers are also announced, and music-loving Sheffield is in for a vocal treat. Author of “The Whitest Man I Know” and other Klondike recitations, Milton Hayes has a new budget of old and new favourites in this field of entertainment. The charming Anglo-French entertainer, Melita Dolores, in songs and dances; Chas. Grantley, the erratic comedian; 3 Bros. Huxter, comedy tumblers; and the Two Tomboys, amazing girl knockabout acrobats, will complete a splendid programme.
