Q&A: I want to audition for the role of Hope Harcourt. what is a good audition piece?

Question by Amber Hall: I want to audition for the role of Hope Harcourt. what is a good audition piece?
I would prefer it to be by Cole Porter and on the upbeat side please. I know I have some stiff competition and I’ve never been through an audition process before so some tips on that would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
