Winter is a great time to stay in and experience the arts. If you’re staying in hotels by Santa Monica beach this month, you can catch the 4th season of the Fireside Series at the Miles Memorial Playhouse in Reed Park. There are still six events happening this month. The events feature contemporary music, storytelling, opera, jazz, dance, poetry, beat boxing, a capella singing and more.
All performances take place beside a large vintage fireplace with a cheery eco-log fire. Comfy couches, organic beverages and snacks are available in this historic playhouse. Free event parking is available in the pink granite-faced underground garage serving 808 Wilshire, entry on Lincoln. Mention “Miles” when parking to receive a validated ticket. Doors open each night at 7:15pm and performances begin at 8pm.

On Friday, January 18, the program includes Orchestra Santa Monica Woodwind Quintent to expose the public to concert music. On January 19, you can experience comedy and spoken word in Uncensored!
