Fuzz and Stuffing Puppets
Under the name of "Fuzz and Stuffing Puppets," puppeteers Craig Adams and Debra Burrell produce and create special educational puppet programs for a variety of organizations. Utilizing the Japanese Bunraku style of puppetry, with puppeteers clad in black and visible to the audience, their large free-standing puppets, look much like big animated stuffed toys.
They are active members of the Southeastern Virginia Puppetry Guild, an officially chartered guild of Puppeteers of America. The Southeastern Virginia Puppetry Guild meets at the Children's Museum of Virginia the third Sunday of the month at 2 p.m. The Guild's monthly meetings feature exciting speakers and workshops, show and tell, and useful tips that anyone using puppets can use. The group welcomes teachers, entertainers, and church groups. There is no admission fee for those attending the meetings. So bring a puppet or an idea for a puppet, bring an open mind and sense of fun, and enjoy learning with, and learning from, other people interested in the ancient art of puppetry.
Every year, Southeastern Virginia Puppetry Guild sponsors and presents the National Day of Puppetry celebration at the Children's Museum of Virginia.
