McShane, of Granby Street, is further accused of breaching an Anti-Social Behaviour Order by using foul, abusive and threatening language on October 21.
All six people indicated "no plea" to all of the allegations they faced.
District judge Diana Baker ruled the case should be heard at Plymouth Crown Court.
Calver, of Peacock Avenue, Torpoint; Collier and Hulme, both of Abbotsbury Way, Ham; Gibbons; Light, of Edith Avenue, St Judes; and McShane were all released on bail while papers are prepared.
They must return to face magistrates on March 7, when prosecutors hope the case will go to the Crown Court.
