* All traditional kabuki theatre, due to a 1629 ban on female actors. This effectively created an entire industry of GenderBender "actresses" (see TheOtherWiki on ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oyama_(Japanese_theatre) onnagatta]]''). Note that when Kabuki first appeared in the early 1600s it was female only, and had females playing male roles. Either way, it's an example.

** There's also Betty, a [[HystericalWoman high-strung]], [[GoodAdulteryBadAdultery cuckolded]], [[EvilMatriarch lady of the house]], who's deliberately played like an over-the-top man in drag a la Creator/MontyPython to show the absurdity of [[VictorianBritain Victorian gender roles]]. In the second act she's played straight by a woman and pretty much realized she'd been forced to play a caricature most of her life.

* In ''Webcomic/BadMachinery'', Lottie gets the part of Blake in her (mixed) school's production of ''Theatre/GlengarryGlenRoss''. [[TakeOurWordForIt One can only wonder]] how they played the "brass balls" scene...

Added DiffLines:

* One class assignment in ''Webcomic/{{Precocious}}'' involved the kids spending some time as each other, drawn randomly. Naturally, some kids end up taking the role of opposite-gender kids. Three of the girls often wear dresses or skirts--Autumn, Tiffany, and Yvette. Jacob drew Autumn to study, while Roddy ended up as Tiffany. NO mention is made by anyone about them being in girl's clothing. (Yvette's role was taken by Kaitlyn. The other girls who were played by boys--Dionne and Ursula--usually wear pants.) Tiffany herself looks just odd in Bud's vest and shirt, though.

* It is very common for the title character in ''Theatre/TheNutcracker'' to be played by a woman. Because, ya know, the [[IncrediblyLamePun nut]][[GroinAttack cracker]] jokes weren't easy enough already.

* The infamous Japanese live-action commercial for ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' (the one with the rapping) had Link played by a 16-year-old schoolgirl. Due to Link's soft features and slight build, this is actually less jarring than you'd think.
