Fox Chapel Area alum-turned-Broadway actress Kirsten (Bracken) Scott will return home on Sunday to perform at Faith United Methodist Church in Fox Chapel.

The star of “An American in Paris” will sing during 10 a.m. services at the West Chapel Ridge Road church.

“After closing the Broadway tour earlier this month, I am so happy to be back singing in my hometown,” Scott said.

A 2003 graduate, Scott said Fox Chapel Area is where she first caught the theater bug.

“As a kid I realized I wanted to devote my life to the arts. Being back in Pittsburgh is so comfortable and familiar, but I am noticing how much has changed since I graduated from Carnegie Mellon back in 2007,” she said. “I love being back in the ‘Burgh.”

While at Fox Chapel Area, Scott was an active member of the choral program, singing in various choirs and acting in the high school’s musicals. She starred as Hope Harcourt in “Anything Goes” and Rosie Alvarez in “Bye Bye Birdie.”

She graduated from the CMU Drama School in 2007 after starring in her senior production of “Side Show.”

Scott is married to fellow Broadway actor Matthew Scott and lives in New York City pursuing film, TV and theater, which she calls her “true love.”

In the past decade, she has acted on Broadway in “Big Fish” and “Hairspray,” and in the national tours of “Ragtime,” “A Wonderful Life,” and “Grease.”

Her TV credits include “Quantico” and “All My Children.”
