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 – Lady Madcap – The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News – Saturday 7th October 1905

The Prince of Wales’s Theatre.

“Lady Madcap” has signalled its success by running into a “second edition,” which was triumphantly produced on Saturday night; and eleven new numbers should be quite enough to encourage and reward a second visit by those who have pleasant memories of its earlier days. One of the most effective novelties is “On a Saturday Afternoon,” a duet followed by a dance, or rather a dance preceded by a duet, for Miss Gabrielle Ray and that wonderful little corporal Mr. George Carrol. Mr. Maurice Farkoa’s delightful share of the entertainment now includes “Sammy,” “Bedelia,” and “Mrs.’Enery ‘Awkins” in French; Miss Zena Dare has several charming new things, including a song in Guardsman’s uniform; and Miss Gabrielle Ray celebrates the Entente as a French “Little Sailor Boy.” Mr. G. P. Huntley’s business, the backbone of the “play,” has been worked up to perfection.

Gabrielle Ray – Betty – The Globe – Saturday 30th October 1915

The Theatre

 Miss Gabrielle Ray in “Betty.”

 

There is all the charm of romance and much of the sparkle of real humour in “Betty,” thanks quite as much to the attractive grace of Miss Winifred Barnes as to the efforts of authors and composers, and to the bright comedy of Mr. Tom Walls as Lord Playne. Last night there was a new comer to the cast in Miss Gabrielle Ray, who, in returning to Daly’s found many friends to welcome her reappearance. She was always a delightful dancer, but Miss Ray has gained in her art as an actress, and both her singing and speaking voice has improved in quality. Her rentrée was a real success. All the fun and alertness of Mr. Laurie de Frece, the boyish sprit of Roy Royston, the “heavy father” efforts of Mr. C. M. Lowne, and the easy methods of Mr. Donald Calthrop as the young lord who wins and finally woos, help to make of the musical play a very fresh and amusing performance.

Gabrielle Ray – See See – The Sphere – Saturday 11th August 1906

A pretty little scene from “See-See” at the Prince of Wales’s Theatre

 See-See, the beauty of Peking (Miss Denise Orme), is being made beautiful by her attendant, So Hei (Miss Gabrielle Ray), but she is sad. Her sister, Mai Yai (Miss Amy Augarde), is puzzled – “Why so discontented? Tell me little sister, what do you need?” It is the love of Yen (Mr. Maurice Farkoa), son of the merchant, Cheoo, but is only after many adventures that she realises her hopes.
