Fireside at the Miles Performance Series Begins on January 10
December 23, 2019
SANTA MONICA, Calif. — Santa Monica’s historic Miles Memorial Playhouse will host the 11th annual Fireside at the Miles, an intimate performance series featuring a mix of world-class music, dance and comedy. The series will kick off at 8 p.m. on Friday, January 10 with the series ending until Saturday, February 22.
The Playhouse, built in 1929, contains a large period fireplace in the main auditorium. In the 1930’s and 40’s the fireplace was used as a centerpiece for community events and it is in this spirit of gathering that the Fireside Series was started in 2010. Seating for the series is oriented around the fireplace and includes couches and coffee tables. Candles, intimate lighting and a coffee and tea bar add to the seasonal ambiance offering a unique Santa Monica experience.
