Stephanie D'Abruzzo

Stephanie D'Abruzzo (b. December 7th, 1971) is a puppeteer that performed Kessie on The Book of Pooh. She has been a Sesame Street Muppeteer since 1993. In that time she has performed a myriad of background characters, & recorded vocals for a number of songs, including "Sing" & "Brothers & Sisters". Her major characters of note have included Elizabeth, a loud but cheerful little girl; Lulu, a curious monster (whom D'Abruzzo helped to develop); & most recently in Season 34, Baby Bear's little sister, Curly Bear. She also voiced the Grouch named Slam a member of Oscar the Grouch's alternate Grouch band. She also provided the voice of Grizzy in The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland, & The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland: Sing & Play, along with the voice of Oscar's sister Bunny.

D'Abruzzo first made contact with the Muppets through David Rudman. Rudman informed D'Abruzzo that The Jim Henson Company was having a huge casting call for female performers. She went to New York to auditioned, made all the cuts, but was only place in a talent pool that would not necessarily guarantee her future work. A few months later, she went back to participate in a month-long workshop in New York and slowly started becoming a Muppet Performer on Sesame Street. Her first day of performing was November 3, 1993 in episode 3162 where she played Monster #3.[1]

D'Abruzzo's television credits outside of her work as a Muppeteer include an appearance on the musical episode of Scrubs & as a commentator on I Love the 70s: Volume 2.
