A Publisher publication is complete but the page size is 8.5 x 11 inches.  The publication needs to be saved to .PDF and sent to the printer.  
How would I change the size of the page to 5.5 x 8.5 without making changes to the content on the pages?

In Publisher 2010 .....
Choose the "Page Design" tab on top.
Then Just above "Page Setup" click on "Size"
Then click on "Page Setup" at the end of the list.
You can the change your page width and height.

You will however probably have to move & resize text etc.

EDIT: I've the last 10 minutes playing with Publisher 2010, and I don't think I'll ever bother using it again. I'll just stick with CorelDraw (although PagePlus seems to be the best). I find it great for doing something similar to what you what  ... which in my case is converting A4 brochures to A5 and A6. Everything can be grouped and resized in one go.

I think we figured it out. To clarify, a printer(company that has print services) said they needed the PDF in the smaller size saying that it was centered on the middle of 8.5 x 11 page.

That's good. However, I thought most print companies could manipulate PDF files to their own requirements.

Yes, that's what I thought.  And print orientation can be adjusted in the print dialogue through autorotate and center, and shrink to printable area, and choose paper by PDF size.
The other alternative is posted above, which requires adjusting the content of the page.
