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 – See See – The Manchester Evening News – Thursday 21st June 1906

 

New Chinese Comic Opera.

 

Mr. George Edwardes is to be congratulated on scoring yet another success with “See- See,” an elaborately staged play with China as its locale, which was produced before a full house at the Prince of Wales’s Theatre last night. No effort has spared in providing picturesque scenery and magnificent dresses. The music and songs, too, are excellent, one song in particular, “The Slave,” sung by Mr. Huntley Wright, describing the woes of the British slaves – slaves to fashion, slaves to golf, &c – receiving a tremendous reception. The play is in the hands of a capable company, which includes Miss Demise Orme, Miss Gabrielle Ray, Miss Lily Elsie, the Misses Amy and Adrienne Augarde, Messrs. Maurice Farkoa, H. Berry, and Fred Emney.

Gabrielle Ray – The Little Cherub – The Manchester Evening News – Monday 15th January 1906

A New Musical Play.

Elaborately produced, with the excellent taste and beauty of costume which characterise all Mr. George Edwardes’s productions, the new musical play, “The Little Cherub,” from the pen of that prolific writer, “Mr. Owen Hall,” enjoyed a most successful premiere at the Princes of Wales’s Theatre on Saturday night. The story deals with a sanctimonious peer, who is a most bitter opponent of the theatre and everything connected with it until he makes the acquaintance of a charming little actress. He then throws off his “once guid” character, and gives a grand supper to the whole theatrical company at an hotel where his own four daughters-happen at the same time to be rehearsing an amateur play entitled “The Little Cherub.” There are other complications, but the happy ending arrives with the actress accepting the peer’s proposal of marriage. The principals, Miss Evie Greene, Miss Zena Dare, Miss Gabrielle Ray, Mr. Maurice, Farkoa, Mr. Fred Kaye, and Mr. Lennox Pawle were all very good, and the music of Mr. Iran Caryll and the lyrics of Mr. Adrian Ross worthily sustain the reputations of than well-knows’ composers.
