“Beautifully plays up the satirical and sentimental elements in equal measure, masterfully moving between realistic and surrealistic registers.” – DC Theatre Arts

Set in a rapidly changing neighborhood, two sisters sign up for a reality tv show to sell their childhood home after the passing of the family matriarch. As Julia and Patricia perform for the camera, they confront their own desires, aspirations, and the sacrifices they are willing to make to achieve them. What is the cultural cost of progress in America? Is cashing in always selling out?

Suz Pontillo (she/they) is a first-generation Chilean-American multi-hyphenate queer artist from Miami, Florida. Since moving to Seattle in 2020, Suz has had the opportunity to work with Tacoma Arts Live, Burien Actors Theatre, Strawberry Theatre Workshop, and Dacha. They are a proud founder of Queen City Theatre and member of Washington Ensemble Theatre.


Antonieta Carpio


Antonieta (she/ella) is honored to be a part of Dream Hou$e. Her performance is dedicated to her mom, Yolanda Carpio and her sister Yolanda Castillo whose stories intertwine with Julia’s. Humbled to be directed by one of my friends, Suz Pontillo and to find a new sister in Adriana Hillias. Long live love! Check the Instagram @antonietacarpio for updates and friendship.

Adriana Hillas


Adriana Hillas is a performer, writer, and teaching artist. Growing up abroad most of her life as a third culture kid, theater was always how she found community. She received her MFA in Collaborative Theatre-Making in 2018 and enjoys sharing her love for theater and play with anyone she can! Adriana has taught performance and writing in public schools and community centers in Washington DC, London, New York City, and is so excited to work with WET and build deeper roots here in Seattle.

Holly Vander Hyde


Holly Vander Hyde (she/they) is so pleased to be making her WET debut! Holly is a multi-disciplinary artist: actress, singer, writer, improviser, and haver of many quick cry sessions in the car (mostly listening to songs imagining that her lover is off at war or her father told her she was adopted). She’s worked with both theatre and improv companies across the West Coast (Dacha, PCPA, Jet City, UCB). But her claim to fame is when she played Zazu in the Lion King at 10 years old, and her parents told her that she “was the only one they could hear.” Truly a prodigy.

Ayla Wallace


Ayla Wren Wallace (she/they) is a Seattle-based theatre maker, artist and yogi. She received her BA in Musical Theatre, Acting and Dance from the University of Washington and went on to study Classical and Contemporary Text Acting at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow. Credits include Kitt (The Resurrections) Sophie (Mamma Mia),  Florizel (A Winters Tale), and devised work such as Girls School Memory Play (Dacha), What Fresh Hell Is This? ((UW), and This Moment (UW). Ayla is passionate about dynamic, visually striking theatre that challenges traditional power structures and brings underrepresented communities further into the light.

Cassidy Mitchell


Cassidy Mitchell grew up in Colorado and Wisconsin, always drawn to the stage. In her senior year of high school she found herself on the improv team, in the plays and musicals, and TA-ing the theatre classes all at once, and realized she’d rather do that than the previously planned engineering degree. She moved to Seattle in 2016 for a Cornish BFA in acting, directing, and playwriting and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2020. Since then, she has started a business, been in Squawk Squad with Jet City Improv, and is now thrilled to be in this production of Dream Hou$e. On weekends she can be found at rehearsals, decluttering her apartment again, or taking her dog, Bear, out to the mountains. Visit her website to experience more of her work.

Emily Huntingford

Emily (she/her) is beyond thrilled to be working with WET! She is an actor and producer in Seattle and has worked with Dacha Theatre, Taproot, GreenStage, UMO Ensemble, ACTLab, Parachute Players, Key City Public Theatre, and many independent works!
