Further details

The band are invited back to their old school for Careers Day. Hope from the bingo hall stumbles across them, and finds out that the former students became friends over the production of the school nativity.

We then flashback to the boys' school days where it's Stef's first directing gig, and he has to choose between three options: a traditional nativity to please the headmaster, a Star Wars-based show to please school geek Jason, and a feminist piece to please the school's most attractive girl, Alaska, who Ash has the hots for. Finding it impossible to choose, Stef lumps them all into one.
