Gabrielle Ray – The Casino Girl – Dublin Evening Telegraph – Saturday 14th September 1901

The musical farce, in two acts, from the Shaftesbury Theatre, London, entitled “The Casino Girl, will be presented at the Theatre Royal on Monday evening for the first time in Dublin by Mr Ben Greet’s company. A strong cast has been engaged. Mr. Joseph Wilson, who will be remembered here as having played in the Theatre Royal pantomime “Cinderella,” scores as “J. Offenbach Gaggs.” The title role will be played by Miss Isa Bowman, who is well and favourably known in Dublin. Miss Gabrielle Ray, late the “Mamie Clancy,” of “The Belle of New York” Company, a sprightly dancer and a most charming actress, has everywhere scored with success as “Dolly Twinkle.” We are informed that it is a very bright and mirthful piece, full of good songs and pretty dances. The magnificent scenery and dresses are an exact replica of the original London production at the Shaftesbury Theatre.

Gabrielle Ray – The Orchid – The Tatler – Wednesday 11th November 1903

A Charming Dancer. –  Miss Gabrielle Ray as Thisbe at the new Gaiety gives promise of qualifying to win a place in the long roll of famous dancers. She has been five years in musical comedy, having made a beginning as Mamie Clancy in The Belle of New York with a company toured by Mr. Ben Greet. Then followed two years in his Casino Girl company as Dolly Twinkle, the part originated it the Shaftesbury by Miss Marie George. Four years previous to her engagement by Mr. Ben Greet Miss Ray had appeared as a child actress in a drama called Proof at the Elephant and Castle, and several pantomime parts in the provinces followed. A year ago she went to the Gaiety to under study Miss Gertie Millar in The Toreador, and from there went to the Apollo, where she has played Miss Letty Lind’s and Miss Ella Snyder’s parts without suffering by comparison. Miss Ray is neither French nor American as is surmised but comes from Lancashire.

Gabrielle Ray – The Tatler – 21st April 1915

A NEW PORTRAIT

 Of an Old and Popular Favourite

 

MISS GABRIELLE RAY (MRS. ERIC LODER) AND FRIEND

All playgoers will be interested in this new portrait of Mrs. Loder, who as Miss Gabrielle Ray charmed us in so many of Mr. George Edwardes’s musical comedies at the Gaiety and Daly’s theatres. Miss Ray’s dancing was not of the highest technical brilliance, but she was certainly one of the most graceful movers ever seen on our stage, and, in the lighter and simpler forms of the dance, inimitable. Her reappearance would be a delight to her many admirers.
