Heck, I've played Banquo, Laertes and Bottom myself in student and youth productions. Usually you play them as the gender they are written as, but sometimes the character's gender is swapped (for example, when I did Hamlet I played Laertes as a guy but Polonius became a female Polonia because the actress wasn't as confident playing a guy).
