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 Little Cherub – The Weekly Journal (Hartlepool) – Friday 30th March 1906

The management of the Prince of Wales’s Theatre, London, writes that during the run of “The Little Cherub” at the Prince of Wales’s Theatre, which is now approaching it’s 100th performance, Miss Gabrielle Ray has so often kicked the improvised football in the hotel scene into the “prompt” box – which has been christened by patrons of the theatre “the football box” – that she has accepted a joking challenge, and is prepared to back herself to the extent of a £5 note to land the ball into that box on any occasion.

Stage & the Drama

 

It is interesting to learn that Mr George Graves, who has returned from America, is to find a in the cast of “The Gay Widow” when that piece succeeds “The Lady Dandies” at Daly’s Theatre. Mr Graves, who had his first chance in London in “The School Girl” four or five years ago, has since won for himself a considerable popularity, first by his humorous reading of the part of Coquenard in “Veronique,” and later as a most diverting General Des Ifs in “The Little Michus.” Plans are being made for sending “The Lady Dandies” on tour, with many of the original company, including Miss Evie Greene, Miss Demise Orme, and Miss Gabrielle Ray. The piece, however, is still proving attractive at Daly’s Theatre.
