In 1984, Normah’s career direction took a major turn.

In that year, she was invited by the late Mustafa Nor to join the Drama Centre. The Drama Centre focused on training young talents in all aspects of professional theatre production. Following her passion in the arts and in educating the young, Normah decided to leave her semi-conventional job to pursue her passion. After the demise of her partner, mentor and friend, Centre Stage Performing Arts (CSPA) was formed with the same mission in 1990.  CSPA became a hub and training ground for many young talents involved in theatre, filmmaking and the visual arts.
