“Fireside At The Miles” Heats Up At Miles Memorial Playhouse:

The Santa Monica Cultural Affairs Division is currently presenting the 6th Annual “Fireside at the Miles” performance series at the historic Miles Memorial Playhouse at 1130 Lincoln Blvd.

Few residents know that the Playhouse, designed by renowned local architect John Byers and completed in 1929, contains a large period fireplace in the main auditorium.

In the 1930s and 40s the fireplace was often used as a centerpiece for community events and performances and it is in this spirit of community gathering that the series started in January 2010.

For the series, the seats are oriented in front of the fireplace, along with a few couches and coffee tables, as well as an organic coffee and tea bar.

Candles and intimate lighting add to the seasonal ambiance. The series offers a truly unique Santa Monica live entertainment experience in a historic setting.

Events are scheduled on Friday and Saturday nights now through Feb. 28, 2015. Scheduled performances in January include the Los Angeles Flute Orchestra, Stand-Up Comedy night, SHINE storytelling and the Orchestra Santa Monica Woodwind Quintet.

February brings the Poree Family Jazz Reunion, Hart Pulse Dance Company, a Capella singing, local dancer Suchi Branfman and singer-songwriter David Poe & Friends. Tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for youth age 18 and under, adults age 55 and over, and students of any age.

Doors open at 7:30 pm, and shows start at 8 pm and end at 10 pm. Seating is general admission.
