Freestyle Releasing and Freestyle Digital Media have set April 24 as the theatrical and VOD release date in the U.S. for “Cinderella”-style romantic comedy “After the Ball,” Variety has learned exclusively.

“After the Ball” is directed by Sean Garrity from a script by Jason Sherman and Kate Melville.

Production companies are Don Carmody Prods., Martinelli Prods. and Jane Silverstone Prods. in association with Telefilm Canada, Movie Central and the Movie Network and with the participation of the Ontario Media Development Corp.

Pacific Northwest Pictures and TVA Films released the film theatrically in Canada last month.
