Dracula has come a long way since his stint in the mid-1400s as Prince of Wallachia. Now, centuries later, hes the inspiration behind Sesame Streets Count von Count, a Halloween celebrity, and an eternal myth given wings through Bram Stokers Dracula. Tonight, the story sinks its teeth into the audience of the Sol Children Theatre Troupe (3333 N. Federal Hwy., Boca Raton), made up of youngsters aged nine through 18. Though only the lead, Kyle Garcia as Dracula, is of voting age, the troupe is well beyond whatever memories you have of high school theater. Many of the kids have worked in the craft for years, and the program is amply experienced. Theyre performing Stephen Hotchners adaptation of the novel at 7:00 p.m. Tickets cost $6 to $10.
