Nakamura Umemaru (初代中村梅丸 Shodai Nakamura Umemaru ?, b. 12 September 1996) is a Japanese kabuki actor, the apprentice to Nakamura Baigyoku IV.

He was first exposed to kabuki when his parents, both of whom work in the publishing industry, brought him to see a play when he was three years old. At age six, he was first introduced to Nakamura Baigyoku, and began helping out backstage at the theatre[1].

Taken under Baigyoku's wing, he first appeared on stage in 2005, under his birth name, in the role of Tōgashi's page in a production of Kanjinchō[2]. and was granted his kabuki stage-name in 2007[1].
