If you want to ring in the new year with a few laughs, The Gloucester House is looking to fill the bill. And a comedy show there is just one of many events on tap for this weekend and into the New Year’s holiday.

A New Year’s Eve gala with dinner, comedy and dancing is being planned for Monday at the Gloucester House off Rogers Street, featuring comedians Paul Nardizzi and Ellen Mochetto.

Doors open at 7 p.m., with dinner set for 7:30 p.m., the comedy show at 9 p.m. and dancing until 1 a.m.

He is also a past winner of the Boston Comedy Festival, and has worked as a comedy circuit headliner for more than 20 years.

’Charlotte’s Web’ in Rockport

An endearing tale of friendship takes center stage for the final weekend with the production of “Charlotte’s Web,” presented by Theatre in the Pines at the Community House in Rockport.

Nan Webber, the director, noted that the Children’s Literature Association named “Charlotte’s Web” the best American children’s book of the past 200 years.

The show runs about an hour and 15 minutes, and will be performed upstairs at the Community House at 58 Broadway in Rockport, with shows set for Friday at 7:30 p.m., and then on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for children. They can be purchased in advance at Toad Hall Bookstore in Rockport and The Bookstore in Gloucester, and at the door.
