BUFFALO, NY ( WKBW ) If you like puppets, then Channel 7's Mike Randall is going to take you to "Puppet Paradise!"

Mike Randall recently caught up with Adam Kreutinger, the creator of some cool characters.

Mike says Adam starts out with a creative idea, a bit of foam - fabric - a few stitches - and a huge dose of imagination!

The results - impressive!

After graduation with a degree in Art Education, Adam's passion for puppets began just a few years ago. Currently, he is creating a cast of characters for the upcoming MusicalFare production of "Avenue Q" - a show described as an adult "Sesame Street."

Adam works with the actors who will bring his puppet characters to life. One of those actors is Maria Droz. Droz says she is not surprised by Adam's penchant for producing puppets. She is the force behind his character, "Mrs. T.!"

If you want to catch Adam's puppet pals in action, make sure you check out "Avenue Q" - if you are over the age of 18 ! The show opens at MusicalFare theater January 25th.
