Bubble Gum Becky—a.k.a. Becky Gomez—is the newest performer to don a pair of Mighty Magic Pants. She joins the group from Fort Worth, Tex., and is proud to proclaim, “I am officially a Nebraskan now.”
Becky has three kids of her own—four, if you count her super-supportive husband Rick Gomez. Becky and Rick’s kids range in age from six to fourteen, and they, too, are excited about having a performing mom.

She’s not afraid to go toe-to-toe with Jake’s quick humor. The Mighty Magic Pants is made up of five teachers and parents (and pirates), each of whom believes that families deserve shared experiences to be enjoyed together. They call it “the mighty magic experience.” That includes fun music and poetry that families can listen to in the car, in the living room, or even in the kitchen…TOGETHER.
