Uncle Eye at Children's Learning Center, San Francisco: 2008

Equipped with a mini-stage set that included the Rubber Chicken of Freedom, a guitar and a caravan of children's songs to die for, Ira Scott Levin’s escapades as Uncle Eye truly incited riots of elation at the Children's Learning Center.  The nature of Uncle Eye's act evoked the undivided attention of these kids whose attention span normally wanders within a few minutes.  The interaction between Uncle Eye and the kids was so contagious that even the older group who were initially "too cool" to participate couldn't resist.  The big question at the end of the day was "when are you coming back?" I have to admit, the Rubber Chicken of Freedom is something to look forward to. Host, C.M.Coleman

Uncle Eye at Children’s Hospital in Oakland, 2008
The hospital is not a fun place to be when you’re a kid.  They end up being poked and prodded among other things, which gets in the way of the fun and important jobs that kids are born to do --  playtime!  The poking, prodding and examinations reflect an inescapable reality for the little ones that need to make a visit to hospitals but today would turn out to be a special day. Uncle Eye was the performer at Children’s Hospital in Oakland and he came armed with his guitar and a special friend, Pollo Elastico.  When word got out that Pollo Elastico was in fact in the building, a flood of kids came out to do their job – play!  So these kids got to join in singing songs, doing Pollo Elastico dances, pretending to be the sun, a moon, cats and The BOSS for a moment in time while in the hospital, allowing them to get back to that all important job that kids were put here to do – play!  Host L. Starbird

"This was an excellent performance.  We have many English Language Learners and they even enjoyed the storytelling and music. Very well done! " Pittman Elementary School, Stockton, Ca

  "Just when I thought nothing could be better, along came Julia and Ira Levin, singing storytellers with such personalities and a show that kept all on the edge of their seats. The students just loved them (so did the teachers). They had never been exposed to such an interactive performance and are still talking about it. " S. Mulvihill,Asst. Principal, Stockton, CA
