The Merrie Pryanksters is a troupe of English country dancers who perform at Renaissance Faires throughout Northern California. Several members of the English Country Dancers club at UC Davis are also members of the Pryanksters. Contact Sarah Caves or Sarah Williams for more information regarding the group, or check out the Merrie Pryanksters Yahoo! Group or the merriepryank LiveJournal community. The clothing, or garb, worn by the members are sewn at group gatherings for the purpose, as a rule they play a group of English peasants to middle class and hence wear garb to reasonably fit this setting.
