Musumeyaku (娘役): literally, "Young Woman Role-Player"

The women who are assigned to play female roles in the Takarazuka Revue. Interestingly, the word musume means "young woman" while the word otoko (as in otokoyaku) means "man". A more equivalent term for the actresses playing female roles would be onnayaku as onna is Japanese for "woman". Some fans and actresses use this term to refer to older musumeyaku e.g. Senka members and upperclassmen. However, it is not an officially recognized Takarazuka term.
