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.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/GeorgeFredericHandel's {{oratorio}} ''Solomon'' has the part of King Solomon written as a ''female'' voice, specifically an alto part originally written for one of Handel's favourite mezzo-sopranos, Caterina Galli. In theory a male counter-tenor might be able to sing it, but it's really a woman's role.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Hornsmoke: A Horse Opera'' by Peter Schickele, Cornetta Bone, the only female role, is expected to be performed by a male cornet player, which explains the low range of the performer's brief (and out-of-character) vocal part.

Compare CrossDressingVoices, which is the voice acting equivalent. In a common CastingGag, you can often expect crosscast roles to cause RecursiveCrossdressing. Contrast with GenderFlip, in which a character is reimagined or rewritten to be the opposite sex, but the actor plays a character of their own sex.
