i would not do it in scribus but...

probably, the best choice, if you can talk to your printer...

... otherwise, i would export a normal pdf from scribus and then use one 
of the pdf manipulation tools for rotating and shuffling around the pages.
but you will have to make sure that the tool correctly keeps the 
embedded fonts and color profiles / color spaces.

have fun
