ZANNA & THE LOST CODE
CYBER SAFETY & RESILIENCE PROGRAM
New for 2023!
A live performance for primary schools that empowers students to build positive connections and thrive in the digital world. Supported by a Q&A and curriculum-aligned Teacher Resources.
This exciting theatre experience engages students in conversations about values, respect and responsibility, and inspires them to build safer and more positive online experiences.
When Zanna and Eddie arrive at coding camp, they have the opportunity to create an app that will make the internet safer for everyone. They embark on a magical journey into their device to find the missing piece of code.
Through a series of exciting challenges, Zanna and Eddie experience the power of empathy, respect, kindness and resilience. When they launch the app, they discover that children all over the world can use it to be assertive, responsible and safe online.
Zanna & the Lost Code is developed in collaboration with teachers and psychologists, and is based on current research by the eSafety Commissioner and other cyber safety experts. Designed to support the curriculum and complement your school’s existing cyber safety, anti bullying and student wellbeing programs, this live performance brings the messages to life and facilitates further conversations and learning in the classroom. Brainstorm Productions is endorsed by the eSafety Commissioner as a Trusted eSafety Provider.

What sort of venue do we need?
An indoor venue with access to electricity. There is no need for any special theatre style venue as the show works best in an open space, with students seated on the floor. A school hall or gym is ideal but we can also use triple classroom areas, libraries etc. Unfortunately due to WHS we cannot use outdoor areas. If you have an unusual venue and would like to discuss it with us please contact our team on 1800 676 224.
A layout diagram is provided for each performance, showing how the actors will set up and how students will be seated. Download the layout diagram for this performance here.
What is the cost and how does the minimum fee structure work?
Our maximum audience for all primary school productions is 280. The cost is $6.50 per student (+GST). A minimum fee of $780 (+GST) applies when less than 120 students attend. Our office will email you a tax invoice after the show, based on the number of students that attended.
What provisions do you have in place for supporting child safety and wellbeing?
We are a Child Safe Organisation and comply with all aspects of Child Protection and screening in each state and territory. We have Risk Assessments in place and all our actors are trained in WHS, appropriate behaviour in schools, dealing with student disclosures and providing appropriate help-seeking information. Scripts have been researched and developed in consultation with teachers and a Clinical Psychologist.
What will the actors need on the day?
The actors will arrive one hour and fifteen minutes before the performance time to sign in and access the venue. The shows are performed on the floor (preferably NOT a stage), no chairs please. They have all their own equipment.
