LE ROY — The musical PLUNGED! will be available for all to see Friday at 7 p.m.

PLUNGED! is about a plumber losing his job at a factory and everyone singing about it. It was all part of a short film for the Buffalo 48 Hour Film Project.

It was filmed in the old Le Roy Jell-O Factory. The production included a crew of 21 people. Andy Rich, Sara Forte, Josh Nilsen and Robin Niccloy were Le Royans in the cast, while Kallia and Tatum Shannon, Leighton Niccloy, and Rob Radley were Le Royans in the crew.

Currently PLUNGED! has been nominated for five awards: Best Original Music Score, Best Sound Design, Best Choreography, Audience Favorite and Top 10 film.

The winning Buffalo 48 Hour Film Project team will go to Los Angeles for the Filmapalooza contest. Their film will be screened against 135 different entries. The top 15 there go to the Cannes Film Festival and are screened.

People can watch PLUNGED! on the Shut Up Mom I’m Making A Film Productions Facebook page and YouTube channel.
