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?'

GRAND THEATRE, WOOLWICH.

Mr. Ben Greet’s company affords a special treat this week in the two-act musical farce, “The Casino Girl,” the house being crowded with an enthusiastic audience. The play is exceedingly well staged, and the choruses are admirably rendered, the piece going at a great pace from start to finish. Several of the performers have appeared at the Grand on many previous occasions, and on each visit seem to receive a heartier welcome. The part of Laura Lee, the Casino Girl, is daintily and winsomely taken be Miss Isa Bowman, and her song, “Ma Blushing Rosie,” elicits repeated encores. Miss Gabrielle Ray proves a vivacious Dolly Twinkle, and able assistance is rendered by Miss Maggie Bowman as Miss Rocks, Miss Louie Danby (Lotta Rocks), Miss Alice Gordon (Mrs. Rooks), and Miss Edith St. Clare. Mr. Max Copland makes an excellent Pilsener Pasha, and causes considerable merriment. Mr. Eardley Turner gives a humorous representation of Offenbach Gear, and is repeatedly recalled for his song, “Nothing New.” Mr. Cecil Curtiss as Van Stuyvesant won great admiration with his easy acting and good voice. Mr. Stanley White as Ben Muley, and Mr. Walter Freear as Potage, afforded considerable amusement.

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next “The Casino Girl” will be played, and on Thursday, Friday and Saturday “The Shop Girl.”
