Control joints necessary?

Are control joints necessary if I'm just stuccoing the front of a brick fire place? It's only about 5 feet wide at the bottom and maybe 6 feet tall.

No, unless you have some odd angles or details you did not mention.

Well...

It isn't just rectangular. Forgive me because I don't know the terminology, but the facade "bottlenecks" by the width of two bricks, on both sides, of course. The edges are at 90 degrees, though.

Another question

Also, is there ever a situation where corner beads are not used?

You won't need control joints. You don't HAVE to use corner bead, but it sure does help in keeping a 90 degree, non wavy corner.
