Free Third Thursdays at MOCA: Oracle Cards and Meditation. It’s the third Thursday of the month again already?! Nuts. That means it’s the penultimate third Thursday event of the year! To find out what next year holds, head to MOCA to make your own oracle cards with the staff, or get a free one-card tarot reading from the Ninth House. You can also enjoy a facilitated meditation in the South Galleries amidst some art by Alison Blickle. Of course, there’s always a cash bar and food trucks at these MOCA events as well, and you don’t need any oracle to tell you that. 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15. 265 S. Church Ave. Free.

On the Verge, or The Geography of Yearning. This production is the next installment in the UA School of Theatre, Film & Television’s Studio Series, in which theater students put on original, contemporary productions with a bare-essentials production model, so as to keep the work of the students a focus. The idea is for viewers to enjoy the collaboration, innovation and process unfolding before them, rather than just the product. In this show in particular, three women come together to explore Terra Incognita, the last unexplored territory. Along the way, the reflect on past and future, their inner and outer selves and what makes them human. 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15 through Saturday, Nov. 17 and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18. Harold Dixon Directing Studio, Drama Building (Room 116), 1025 N. Olive Road. $7. Details Here.

On Your Feet! If the very thought of Emilio and Gloria Estefan is enough to make you want to get up on your feet, then this is a show for you. We all know about the part where they ruled the pop music world, but not everyone knows that, just when they thought they had it all, they almost lost everything. This show takes viewers behind the music and shows them how this record-making, ground-breaking, hip-shaking couple ended up on their feet. Two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell directs, Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo choreographs and Academy Award winner Alexander Dinelaris wrote the book. Get on your feet! 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15; 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16, and Saturday, Nov. 17; 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17; and both 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18. $19 to $125. Centennial Hall. 1020 E. University Blvd. Details Here.
