The Niigata AJET Charity Musical is run by the local Niigata AJET chapter in Niigata Prefecture and is the only known JET charity musical still running today, with the longest-running history. Every year, ALTs volunteer to put on a show to raise money for an international charity designated by the AJET Charity Coordinator. The musical uses an original script written by the cast every year. All stage direction and choreography are done by the ALTs specifically for the show. Showtimes are usually during the winter (typically February and March), at locations throughout the prefecture.
