"Rock of Ages" Star Mark Shunock to Launch "Mondays Dark" Monthly Charity Entertainment Event at The Act
The third Monday night of each month is about to become a hot bed of entertainment, music and comedy for a cause when “Rock of Ages” star, Mark Shunock, who plays Lonny the narrator in the hit musical at the Venetian, launches “Mondays Dark.” 

The monthly charity show will premiere on October 21, 2013, at 9:30 pm, at The Act inside The Venetian / Palazzo.

On the third Monday of every month at The Act at The Venetian / Palazzo, Shunock will gather an eclectic cast of four to six guests including stars from Hollywood, Vegas headliners, musical acts, athletes and celebrity chefs for 90 minutes of chat, entertainment – and a lot of laughs. Each month “Mondays Dark” will partner with a different Las Vegas-based charity and Shunock’s goal is to raise $10,000 per month for each charity, with an estimated grand total of more $100,000 over the next twelve months.

“As a performer, it’s a way for me to give back to Las Vegas in the only way I know – as an entertainer,” says Shunock. “The premise of the show is old-school Vegas meets new-school Vegas while being very gritty, real and spontaneous.” His plan is to create an evening that raises awareness and funds for a charity while at the same time, being an entertaining evening that people won’t forget.

“The Act jumped on board immediately and it really is the perfect venue for this show,” says Shunock. “Even though it’s a club, it’s a theatre too – a very intimate theatre that will really showcase the talent and vibe of the evening exactly the way I envision it.”

The framework of the evening will be modeled after a talk show format with topics, musical guests and very “off the cuff” moments. Each evening will be professionally filmed and uploaded to the Mondays Dark website to further spread the word and raise funds for each charity. “Mondays Dark” will also feature musical director Lon Bronson and his The Lon Bronson Band, one of the most acclaimed and the longest running bands in Las Vegas history. The celebrity guest list and first charity for the premiere event on October 21st will be announced shortly.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by visiting VIP table reservations and bottle service are also available by calling 702-485-1262. “Mondays Dark” will occur every third Monday night of the month at The Act inside The Venetian/Palazzo at 9:30 pm. Follow us on Twitter @Mondays_Dark.
