Please note: To preserve the authenticity and genuineness of the scripted role of Knights in the Medieval Times theatrical production, Knights positions are reserved for male performers. Because Knights positions are filled exclusively from the ranks of Squires who have trained at Medieval Times to become Knights, the role of Squire is likewise reserved for male performers who are evaluated at the time of hire as demonstrating the potential for advancement to a Knight position.
