    • Kirk: I'll just be two minutes and then it's L'Chaim to Life.

      L'Chaim to Life is a play which looks at a relationship between a Jewish father and his son.

      L'Chaim to Life is also the name/lyrics of a song in Fiddler On The Roof, which is the specific play being performed at the school, and its main singer is Tevye, the character being played by Kirk.
      Goes like this:
      To life, to life, l'chaim.
      L'chaim, l'chaim, to life.
      Here's to the father I tried to be!
      Here's to my bride to be!
      Drink, l'chaim, to life!
